There were a lot of dirty tricks on TV this week. Jo Reynolds (Daphne Zuniga) cajoled poor Riley into posing topless on Melrose Place. House and Foreman conducted an autopsy on a living person. Gossip Girl's Chuck kissed a guy because of Blair's deception. CSI: Miami's Eric Delko tricked us all by slinking off into the night with barely any explanation. Welcome to this week's Top Moments: Dirty Tricks Edition.
Jessica Lucas knows that signing on to play Riley, one-half of Melrose Place's happy couple (Michael Rady's Jonah is the other half), is a risky move on a show so single-centric. For that reason, she says, "What was important to me ... [was] establishing Riley away from Jonah and as having a strong point of view." Though she sings Rady's praises, let's face it: Nobody stays together forever on this show like this. "We're kind of headed down that road," Lucas admits. But first, she'll pose on a beach for photographer Jo Reynolds (original cast member Daphne Zuniga), who returns to Melrose for two episodes this season starting Tuesday (9/8c, CW). Lucas tells us why Riley isn't cut out to be a model, what Zuniga told her and why we should all brace ourselves for the cutest breakup ever.
Daphne Zuniga will appear on the CW's new Melrose Place this fall, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
For at least two episodes, Zuniga will reprise the role of photographer Jo Reynolds, who has now attained some degree of success — much like Donna Martin, fashion designer. (Question: Did you ever see Jo snap a single frame after, like, the fourth episode?)
Zuniga, who recently played Brooke's mom on One Tree Hill, joins former Place-mates Thomas Calabro, Josie Bissett, and Laura Leighton on the reboot.
