Forget the obvious main cast like Tori Spelling or Luke Perry. We remember all the other, less-obvious faces that wandered in and out of that famous zip code.
We’re talkin’ folks like Jamie Walters, who played the hunky singer Ray Pruit, whose song "How Do You Talk Like An Angel?" really should be shared with the new generation before he shoves one of the new girls down the stairs. Or perhaps Dina Meyer’s Lucinda Nicholson, who had a thing for younger men, could totally be the lucky cougar to deflower poor, loveless Navid.
Add Jessica Alba, Matthew Perry or Hilary Swank to the list while you’re at it.
And let’s not forget that the networks just announced that Melrose Place will get the contemporary update treatment as well, so that opens up a whole slew of ’90s-era soapsters that could be finding work as their old alter-ego.
Former Rob Estes (90210), Josie Bissett (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) Doug Savant and Marcia Cross (Desperate Housewives) and Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) already have primetime TV jobs, but there are plenty of other cast members — regular and guest stars — who should be able to fit a return into their schedules.
Alyssa Milano? Gina Gershon? Traci Lords? Oh yes.
