Fans the CW’s 90210 have been clamoring for a good, old-fashioned bad boy to rattle the lockers at West Beverly High. Well, meet the new guy – Liam, played by Matt Lanter.

Lanter, who voices the role of Anakin Skywalker on the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and who also played a really, really bad boy – Brody Mitchum, the high school jock who once put predatory moves on Claire Bennett (Hayden Panettiere) on Heroes — has been cast for multiple episodes, the first of which will air in February. It seems Liam will be shaking things up, specifically with Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord)!

Perhaps Liam will be the new Dylan McKay for this generation?

90210 returns with new episodes on Tuesday, Jan. 6. — Cynthia Wang
