Jessica Lucas Moves From 90210 to Melrose Place
The CW's Melrose Place has found its newest resident in Cloverfield star Jessica Lucas.
Lucas will join Melrose as rich kid Riley Richmond, a 24-year-old inner-city elementary school teacher (she cares, people!), says The Hollywood Reporter. Riley's engaged to Jonah (Michael Rady), but is having second thoughts about walking down the aisle.
Lucas knows what it's like to be on a reboot. She recurred as undercover cop Kimberly on that other CW update of a '90s Fox series, 90210. The 23-year-old is the fourth actor to be cast on Melrose. In addition to Rady, Katie Cassidy and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz have also signed up.
What do you think of Lucas' casting? How much drama can she bring to the pool? And enough with the chicks, where are the bad boys? Paging Grant Show 2.0.
