Dustin Milligan: Dropped From 90210
Canadian actor Dustin Milligan won’t be returning as a regular on the next season of 90210.
“Everyone loves Dustin,” an insider tells EW. “There was just a feeling that the character had run its course.”
90210 boss Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair recently admitted the first season had faults. She shared, “If Gossip Girl is about youth in New York, I want to [make 90210 more] about youth in L.A. and Beverly Hills… The show tried to be a lot of things to a lot of people in its first season. I think the center lies with the generation of kids that are in high school now. I’m not interested in casting people for stunt value (90210 alums Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty and Tori Spelling).”
Of note: Matt Lanter, aka bad boy Liam, was recently promoted to a series regular.
