Rob Estes is set to star in the CW’s “90210,” while Katee Sackhoff has joined FX’s “Nip/Tuck” as recurring, says The Hollywood Reporter. In other casting news, Polly Walker has come on board Sci Fi Channel’s two-hour pilot “Caprica.”
“90210” centers on the Mills, a three-generation Beverly Hills family. Estes will play the father, Harry Mills, who takes a job as principal of West Beverly High, his alma mater, after he moves his family from Kansas.
This is the second “Beverly Hills, 90210” spinoff for Estes, who played Kyle McBride on Fox’s “Melrose Place.”
On the upcoming sixth season of “Nip/Tuck,” Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”) will play Dr. Theodora “Teddy” Lowe, a new doctor who challenges Sean (Dylan Walsh). She will appear in four episodes.
Also set to appear in the FX drama is Morgan Fairchild, who will play a movie star in one episode.
On the “Galactica” prequel “Caprica,” Walker (“Rome”) will play Sister Clarice Willow, the gracious, eloquent and duplicitous high priestess and headmistress of the Athena Academy, a private religious school.
