Matt Lanter opens up about TONIGHT’S series finale of 90210 in this brand new interview with JustJared.com!
The 30-year-old actor says goodbye to Liam after playing the charming surfer boy for five years.
JJ caught up with Matt to talk about his time on the show, the future of “Lannie,” and the finale you never got to see!
He also gave us some scoop on his upcoming show Star-Crossed (formerly Oxygen) with Aimee Teegarden, and even opens up about his real-life wedding!
JustJared.com: Hi Matt! So we read that you guys had to switch around the finale at the last minute. Can you tell us about that?
Matt Lanter: Yeah, actually that is true. We had an entire episode written out and we had the table read for it, and everything. It was a really cool episode and I think we were all kind of bummed we didn’t get to do it because the whole Act 6 of the episode was set five years into the future. We were all five years older and obviously at much different places in our lives. My character, I was just getting out of jail. I had went to jail for this bombing we saw last episode. Somehow Liam took the rap for that and he went to jail for five years. He just got out. It was really cool. We were talking about changing looks and everything. We were talking about buzzing my hair, all kinds of crazy stuff. We were really interested in doing that. And the plan was, if we had come back for season six, we were going to be set five years into the future, basically being 25 years old. It was really cool, but last minute, we got the call that we needed to change things. So it is what it is.
Good news for Matt Lanter fans: While 90210 may be saying farewell this week, Matt won’t be leaving our TV screens (or The CW) anytime soon! His new series Star-Crossed — formerly titled Oxygen — was officially picked up to series May 9, and he recently gave HollywoodLife.com the scoop on what the sci-fi thriller is all about.
“It’s kind of like Brown Vs. The Board of Education, with aliens, mixed with an epic romance,” Matt explained, fully aware of how strange his explanation sounded. “You’re going to have all these human rights issues we dealt with as a society 50-something years ago, but you’re dealing with it between humans and aliens.”
Star-Crossed will take place in the future, where aliens live in their own segregated community, and Matt happens to play one of those aliens. Things get complicated — to say the least — when his character, Roman, falls in love in with human-girl Emery (Aimee Teegarden).
“The pilot is all about a government program to desegregate the two species, and it starts in an American high school,” Matt continued. “On top of all that, you have this forbidden romance [between Roman and Emery.] It’s kind of like a Romeo & Juliet story. It’s the star-crossed lovers that can’t be, and shouldn’t be, but have to be.”
Matt attended 2 events this month.
The first one is at the Hard Rock Lounge in Palm Springs on April 14th.
The second is an event held by Kiehl’s for their launch of Environmental Partnership Benefiting Recycling
