Oscar-winning actor Ryan O’Neal is heading to The CW’s primetime soap Beverly Hills, 90210.
The 68-year-old actor will play the father of teen hunk Teddy, played by former soap star Trevor Donovan, a network rep confirmed to Entertainment Weekly this afternoon. Teddy’s dad, described on the show as a famous actor, has never been seen on screen.
New episodes of 90210 return in March. Ryan is expected to make his series debut in April.
