While legions of fans crushed hard on Silver, Green’s real-life wife Megan Fox was not one of them.

In fact, according to Green, 45, she hasn’t seen an episode of the iconic ’90s soap drama.

“When we met, Megan was like, ‘He looks like Justin Timberlake.’ That’s all she cared about. She grew up with ‘N Sync,” Green previously told PEOPLE.

Green and Fox, 33, have been married since 2010 and met while working on the sitcom Hope & Faith.

“Her older sister was a huge fan of 90210, but Megan didn’t know it at all,” Green adds.

Now filming, BH90210 will be comprised of six episodes in which the OG gang from West Beverly High play “heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama — with a healthy dose of irreverence — that is inspired by their real lives and relationships,” according to the network.

On working with the cast again after 19 years (Beverly Hills, 90210 ran for 10 seasons from 1990 to 2000), Green said it’s “surreal.”

“The first time we all got back together, we were in a story meeting and I stopped, like, ‘Wait a second. We’re all like sitting in the same room right now? This is crazy,’” he said.
