And the 90210 spinoff casting news keeps a-coming in! Tristan Wilds, who played Michael Lee on HBO's acclaimed The Wire, has been cast in the role of Dixon Mills.

As detailed here, Dixon is the adopted brother of Annie ( Degrassi: TNG's Shenae Grimes). He's Brandon to her Brenda except... um, minus the sideburns.

Again I say, this show really needs a title by now. In fact, I was brainstorming ideas at Bob's Big Boy this morning with the Warner Bros. TV peeps. We came up with: "The Pussycat Dolls Present: Return to 90210: The Next Generation." Like? - MWM
