Look who Teddy is hooking up with on “90210″
Well, well. It doesn’t look like our Teddy is going to be lonely on 90210 once Ian is out of the picture.
TVLine reports that a character played by Smallville alum Alan Ritchson (pictured below) will hook up with Teddy (Trevor Donovan) in the 18th episode of the season.
Ritchson will play Teddy’s old prep school roommate Tripp who he, of course, privately crushed on back in the day. The two run into each other during spring break.
So what is happening to Ian? It’s not clear how he is being written out but the behind-the-scenes reason for hos departure is that actor Kyle Riabko wants to move on. He is not just a young TV actor looking for a break – Riabko is the Broadway star of the musicals Spring Awakening and Hair and wants to make himself available for the looming pilot season.
