The poor woman’s Hayden Christensen

# 2

Forgot to add – he looks like Nick Lachey – when Nick Lachey was younger, buffer and hotter.

# 3

His blue eyes are electrifying!! I swear it was like love at first sight with him, I mean he’s gorgeous, but I love Ozzie on 90210 too and I thought things were finally progressing with him and Naomi? Maybe this is not the best time to throw him into the story? But I want to see him play a bad boy.

Great. He’s cute. Though, the reason the show is such a failure is that it doesn’t focus on the group’s dynamics. They’re going to keep bringing in bisexuals and long lost sons without showing us viewers reasons to care about the main characters. Whatever.

# 5

I totally agree HALO!
So many newbies. They should focus on THE MAIN CAST! if they don’t, it’s going to FAIL!!!!!!!!

# 6

Ah, Matt! He’s absolutely gorgeous, and I love him. :P I’ve loved him, especially in The Cutting Edge 3. He’s a great actor, and whoa those eyes and that smile! :D

I’d love to see him play the bad boy. But honestly, I’m not sure about him fitting into the show.

# 7

A little too soft and boyish for me; twinkies are too sweet for my stomach.

# 8

He’s not going to be paired w/ Stroup’s character most likely it’s McCord and Grimes, Lauren London is going to be paired off on Stroup/Wilds.

It’s getting hotter in this zip code.

Matt rocks! I became a fan of his when I saw Cutting Edge 3. Can’t wait to see 90210.

He was the cutest guy in Manhunt; I watched that horrible reality show just for him! I have no idea how he made the cut as a model with his flabby body at the time, but his face is adoooorable.

Michelle, you watched Cutting Edge 3? Wasn’t there a test pattern that you could stare at instead? It would have been better television.

yay! loved him in the cutting edge 3 he can act and his hotness dont bother me much!

Here is a tip . . .things not to do in a picture . . .do not give the thumbs up, it looks so dumb.

ugh. stop bringing in so many new characters 90210!
why can’t you develop storylines for your main cast without bringing in 1000 other recurring guests?

i am close to giving up on this show that is NOTHING compared to gossip girl!

He was also a cast member of Commander In Chief, that show where Geena Davis was president. He played her son.

I can tell there is going to be A LOT of drama in these new episodes.

Beverly Hills 90210 is a selectively homophobic show with a bisexual double standard. Note how it’s always a bisexual female they add and never a bisexual male. Shows like this are simply accommodating the fetishes and phobias of sleazy straight guys who don’t give a rat’s about gay rights.

He’s also the voice of Anakin Skywalker on The Clone Wars animated series, and does a really nice job there.

never seen him before.

but he’s handsome……really hot

okay this is to “Feldman” your a ***** you know that ?!
how could you even say that she just jealous of her and that she probably weighs 3 more times than her ? you dont even know what lindsay looks like
