OK, so here is the cast of the new Melrose Place thus far…
Laura Leighton as Sydney Andrews
Thomas Calabro as Dr. Michael Mancini
Katie Cassidy as Ella Flynn (a PR whiz whose tongue is as sharp as her stilettos)
Shaun Sipos as David Patterson (the grown up son of Jake with the taut abs and thick black book to prove it)
Michael Rady as Jonah Miller (a Kevin Smith wannabe who is obsessed with his movies)
Jessica Lucas as Riley Richmond (a sickly-sweet school teacher who is engaged to Jonah and is drawn to the glamorous lifestyle) –Jessica appeared on this season of the new 90210 as a different character.
Colin Egglesfield as Auggie Kirkpatrick (a hunky hippie, this recovering alcoholic is willing to give everybody the benefit of the doubt)
Stephanie Jacobsen as Lauren Bishop (sort of an anti-Michael, this straight-arrow med student falls on such hard times that she’s forced to pull a Sydney and trade sexual favors for financial ones)
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz as Violet Foster (Though she’s fresh off the turnip truck, this small-town teen already has a worldly-wise m.o.: play the sex kitten till you’re ready to bare your claws)
Already sounds like the storyline possibilities are endless!
