Meet West Beverly's newest hottie: Matt Lanter. - Todd Williamson/WireImage.com
25-year-old Matt Lanter is joining the cast of "90210" as the love interest for resident bad girl Naomi (played by AnnaLynne McCord).
In an interview with "Access Hollywood" last week, AnnaLynne could barely contain her excitement over her new on-screen hookup, saying, "he's sexy ... I think it's going to be hot!"
Apparently, the crew is predicting Matt's character Liam will reach Dylan-like popularity. Hopefully he won't be sporting Luke Perry's sideburns!
If Matt looks familiar, it's because he's already done a lot of work.
The blue-eyed hottie first began turning heads as a contestant on Bravo's "Manhunt: The Seach For America's Most Gorgeous Male Model."
He then had a stint on ABC's "Commander In Chief" as the President's son.
Science fiction fans will know him as the voice of Anakin Skywalker in "The Clone Wars" animated movie and series.
Limiting Matt to a voiceover studio is a waste. He should be seen! We'll have our chance in February, when he makes his "90210" debut.
