Ex-NBA star Rick Fox is joining the cast of the CW’s Melrose Place.
Fox will appear as a recurring character on the CW remake of the popular FOX series from the ‘90s.
He will play the role of a restaurant owner where the aspiring actors on the show work.
Think a younger, hotter Nat Busichio from the Peach Pit on Beverly Hills 90210.
The three-time NBA champion dabbled with acting during his 13-year career as a member of the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers.
On camera, Fox is probably best known for his role on the HBO series Oz. Off camera, he was known as Mr. Vanessa Williams, as the couple married in 1999 before divorcing in 2004.
Sorry ladies, Fox is off the market; he’s currently dating actress Eliza Dushku.
The CW struck gold with the updated version of 90210 and they are hoping lightning strikes twice with Melrose Place. With the series premiere less than a week away, I’m looking forward to seeing Dr. Michael Mancini (Thomas Calabro) and Sydney Andrews (Laura Leighton) again with the cast of fresh faces.
If Melrose Place has the same success as 90210, does this mean we are going to have a Models Inc. remake for next year?
