The names of the new Beverly Hills 90210 cast have been revealed: Dustin Milligan, Anna Lynne McCord, Jessica Walter, Shenae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, Lori Loughlin, Ryan Eggold, Jessica Stroup, and Michael Steger.
And as far as we can decipher: the producers have decided to forego using a person of real Iranian/Persian descent to play the role of Navid Shirazi (whose charater was previously described as an Iranian-American student).
We conclude as such because, none of the cast names mentioned resemble an Iranian name. Though to the producers’ credit(s), they just probably had a hard time finding an Iranian in LA.
At least Jennie Garth is back.
