The TV Addict has some bad news for Brian Austin Green. He can run, but he can’t hide.
In other-words, as much he’d love to cast off the shackles that was ten years of playing David Silver, on what we’ll now be referring to as the ‘original’ BEVERLY HILLS 90210, it ain’t gonna happen.
Well, at least in the mind of this TV Addict. Whose formative teenage years [for better or for worse] coincided with the gang from Beverly Hills.
Which is why, during this weekend’s press event that followed the fantastic TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES panel at Comic Con, there was no way I was letting the artist formerly known as the Notorious B.A.G. off the hook.
As my fellow reporters peppered Brian Austin Green with serious questions about his character’s motivations and what the future holds for Derek Reese, I couldn’t help myself. I mean David FRAKKIN’ Silver was sitting a foot away from me! Frankly, I deserve a medal for not asking him how he could go behind Donna’s Back at the freshman Carnival and lose his virginity with that slutty tramp Ariel.
So here’s how it went down.
The TV Addict: I guess I’m going to be the one to ask the 90210 question, since I quite literally grew up on the show. Here you are, re-ineventing yourself with TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, while at the same time, the CW is bringing back the show that turned you into a household name.
Brian Austin Green: What are the f*ck’in odds of that right? [laughs]. Perfect. Just as I’m trying to get away from the show, they pull me in with a new one. I want to talk about my new stuff but here is this old elephant in the room that won’t go away!
I wish them the best with the show. I wish all the kids that do it ten years like we had and I hope for the CW it’s a huge hit and it does the same thing to them that it did with FOX.
