“90210” star AnnaLynne McCord is excited to have Rumer Willis appearing in at least one episode of The CW series – but AnnaLynne might be more excited about her new proximity to Rumer’s mom, Demi Moore.
”[I’m] very happy to have her, I have met [Rumer] once or twice and she is very sweet,” AnnaLynne told Access Hollywood on Tuesday night at the OP launch of the new OPen Campus campaign at Mel’s Diner in West Hollywood. “I think she’s awesome and obviously, you know, I kind of have a girl crush on her mom so its good to have her.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Demi and Bruce Willis’ eldest daughter will play Gia on The CW teen series. Her character has been described as a punky cute lesbian who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, a rep for The CW told Access last week.
And Rumer isn’t the only star headed to West Beverly. Former “Days of Our Lives” star Trevor Donovan has joined the cast as teenage tennis player Teddy. AnnaLynne told Access the new addition to the cast will not disappoint fans hoping to see a new hunk in the halls of the high school.
“He is the new hunk in town. It was so funny because we all read the description obviously in the first episode and it was like ‘a young Robert Redford’ and we were like ‘Who are they going to get for this?’ [Those are] kind of big shoes to fill. Robert Redford — are you kidding me?” she said. “So we walk on set and the wind is blowing and he is like popping tennis balls and he looks just like a young Robert Redford. And we were like ‘Wow, they did pretty good.’”
“90210” returns to The CW this fall.
