Melrose Place – Casting News and Spoilers

There sure are a lot of dead people being cast on the revival of Darren Star’s 1992 relationship drama “Melrose Place“. In addition to returning cast members Josie Bissett, Daphne Zuniga and Laura Leighton (for however long she survives), Katie Cassidy is being reunited with fellow Harper’s Island victim Victor Webster.

Katie Cassidy will play Ella Simms. Earlier reports have her as is either a good-natured bisexual college grad or a smart, sassy lawyer but most the most recent promos have her occupation listed as a talented publicist. The bi-sexual/lesbian part of the role is a constant in all cases.

Victor Webster’s character will arrive in the second episode as Caleb Brewer, a cigar-smoking, scotch swilling man’s man except for the fact that he likes men. Caleb is gay, out, and Ella’s boss.

Cassidy and Webster join Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, who will play Violet, a small-town girl in the big city, Colin Egglesfield, who’ll play wannabe chef and currently surfer Auggie Kirkpatrick and Michael Rady as Jonah Miller.

Just like old times, the new Melrose Place will premiere on September 8th, right after the second season premier of 90210, the show that started it all (the first time.)
