“90210” might be shedding a few cast members for Season 5, but look at the bright side: that leaves room for new ones. Zap2it has learned that Trai Byers and Wes Brown are joining the cast for recurring roles in Season 5.
Byers will play Alec, an Ivy League hotshot, tech-savvy guy who also happens to be Max’s business partner. Both charming and attractive (as if there’s any other kind on this show), he’s fiercely protective and much more focused on his work than his personal relationships.
Meanwhile, Wes Brown will recur as Taylor, a hot club promoter who’s irresistible to the ladies. He uses his charm, determination and wit to get what he wants, but he’s ultra focused on his career. He also loves music and has an eye for new talent, like Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes).
Brown is no stranger to The CW, having guest-starred as handsome veterinarian/sort-of Rachel Bilson love interest Dr. Judson Lyons during the first season of “Hart of Dixie.” You might also recognize him from his recurring role on “True Blood” as Fellowship of the Sun suicide bomber Luke McDonald. Byers played Mookie on the beloved-but-canceled ABC soap “All My Children.”
