Brian Austin Green On New '90210': 'It Could Be Good. Or It Will Suck Terribly'

With so many of the original castmembers returning to their former ZIP code (or not, depending on the latest report), you might be wondering, "Will a revamped 'Beverly Hills, 90210' be any good?"

The former David Silver has the same question. When we caught up with Brian Austin Green at San Diego's Comic-Con — where he was promoting his show, "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" — we asked him what he thought about the show coming back.

"Is there a '90210' booth here?" he teased. "Doesn't matter. [Comic-Con is] not their crowd. I'm curious to see if it's rebooted on the same level as Batman. I don't think it'll be up to par, but it'll be interesting."

Green then asked if I ever actually watched "Beverly Hills, 90210" — "I'm interviewing you now," he joked. Trying to be polite, I said I related to his character when he was a college radio DJ, since I was one too (although I'd have to seriously dispute his taste in music — I mean, what was up with the Season to Risk posters on the wall when he was playing hip-hop?).

"You weren't doing crystal meth, though, were you?" he asked.

"Nope," I freely admitted.

"Oh, that's OK. We can't all do crystal meth," he laughed.

At least he has a sense of humor about the show coming back just as he's rebuilding his career as a more serious actor. (Read about his interest in joining Christopher Nolan's Batman series on the MTV Splash Page blog.)

"I'm curious to see what people think," Green said. "[The new '90210'] could be good. Or it will suck terribly. I have a lot to look forward to. 'Terminator' new episodes on Mondays at 8, and new '90210' on a night at a certain time. [Ed. note — that would be Tuesdays at 8 p.m.] I'll plug both, why not? I should get paid by the other one, though."
