He was just a good ol’ boy when he was Bo Duke – not to mention the kindly Jonathan Kent (Smallville) and Marshall Bowman (The Secret Life of an American Teenager).
But now John Schneider is playing a mean guy – Liam’s plastic surgeon stepfather – when he joins the cast of 90210 tonight. And the Mount Kisco native couldn’t be happier about it.
When I interviewed him for our Fall TV preview, he told me:
<blockquote><div>It’s fun to be able to let loose, than play the stoic man of honor.</div></blockquote>

It’s like 1992 all over again!!!
The CW starts its fall season at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 8, with the second season premiere of “90210,” followed by the launch of its other ’90s-teen-drama-stolen-from-FOX, “Melrose Place.”
That’s the exact same lineup the original shows had back in the day! Naturally, since “MP” was a “90210” spin-off. And I’m quite sure that if the CW programmed the 10 p.m. hour, “Models Inc.” – whoops! I mean,
“The Beautiful Life” – would be in that slot.
(I feel so nostalgic, like I should be wearing high-waisted jeans or baby-doll dresses. Wait, that’s actually back in style – perfect!)
Anyway, according to Variety, the rest of the CW’s premieres will roll out through the end of September, with few surprises.
The only semi-shock? The time slots of its Monday shows will flip-flop, putting “One Tree Hill” at 8 p.m. and “Gossip Girl” at 9.
Here’s the TV guide:
Tues., Sept 8
8 p.m.: “90210”
9 p.m.: “Melrose Place”
Wed., Sept. 9
8 p.m.-10 p.m. “America’s Top Model”
Thurs., Sept. 10
8 p.m.: “Vampire Diaries”
9 p.m. “Supernatural”
Mon., Sept. 14
8 p.m.: “One Tree Hill”
9 p.m.: “Gossip Girl”
Weds., Sept. 16
9 p.m.: “The Beautiful Life”
Fri., Sept. 25
8 p.m.: “Smallville”

Never fear, fans of rich kids, superheroes and aspiring supermodels!
The CW announced yesterday that “Gossip Girl,” “One Tree Hill,” “90210,” “America’s Top Model,” “Smallville” and “Supernatural” would all be returning in Fall 2009.
More Chuck and Blair? More Superman? More angsty drama from the halls of West Beverly?
All good news, of course!
But such auspicious tidings come with a dark lining: The CW didn’t announce the fates of four other shows, which doesn’t bode well for “Reaper,” “Privileged,” “The Game” and “Everybody Hates Chris.”
Some of those shows will likely be cancelled to make way for the new “Melrose Place” update and “Gossip Girl” spinoff featuring a teenage Lily (you know, back when she was a rock groupie and before she became a van der Woodsen).
So what would you rather see more of?
The Devil and his son?
Or the next Andrew Shue? (Hey, don’t laugh so hard: He was a dreamboat during Melrose-mania…)
