Rob Estes by Steve Granitz/WireImage.com
They wanted him, and they got him. As scooped by Ausiello earlier in the week, The CW's 90210 serial was hot to cast Rob Estes as the central family's patriarch/West Beverly High's new principal, and sure 'nuff, it happened.

The onetime Melrose Place resident will play Harry Mills, a WBH alumnus who moves his family from Kansas to Beverly Hills to take care of his alcoholic mother ( Arrested Development's Jessica Walter). Lori Loughlin plays his wife, Shenae Grimes and Tristan Wilds their children.

What's your take? Too hunky to be a high school principal? Belding and Skinner never looked like this. - MWM
