90210 (The CW) - Shenae Grimes ("Degrassi: The Next Generation") and Lori Loughlin ("Summerland") are the latest additions to the "90210" spin-off, which centers on the Mills, a three-generational Beverly Hills family. The former is tapped as Annie Mills, who's detailed in the casting notice as follows: "Legal 18 to play 16. A theater kid...and all that entails. Annie is sensitive. She writes poetry in a journal. She's up on all the obscure emo bands. She's desperate to fit in with the kids who desperately try to appear as though they don't fit in. What's more - she's a very good actress. She seems to have inherited her grandmother's talent. Though she's not outrageous, herself, she's drawn to big personalities. Though she cast the lone vote against his adoption, Annie has become very close with her brother, Dixon. Their interests are completely dissimilar and at their old high school they didn't really run in the same crowd, but here, at Beverly Hills High, they're going to lean on each other more than ever."

Loughlin then is set as her mom Celia Mills: "Late 30s-Early 40s. The jock of the family, Celia won the Bronze Medal in cycling (Individual Pursuit) at the 1988 Olympic games in Seoul. Though she doesn't come right out and say it to her husband, Celia is looking forward to the move from dilapidated East St. Louis to Beverly Hills even though her relationship with her famous mother-in-law is always difficult. Celia's lost a degree of the humanitarian zeal that Harry has managed to maintain. Early in the series, Celia will begin to find work as a personal trainer to various peers/fellow BHHS parents allowing us another device by which we can insert our regulars into the lives of various guest stars. Celia is the parent who ends up cracking the whip. She loves her husband, but often thinks it must be nice to get to be "the cool one" rather than the one who makes them complete their chores, make it in by curfew, etc. Like her husband, Celia fears what might happen when their kids become "Beverly Hills" kids." AnnaLynne McCord and Dustin Milligan also star in the CBS Paramount Network Television-based hour, which comes from executive producers Gabe Sachs, Jeff Judah and Rob Thomas.
