Brian Austin Green. He’s back, people. Fans of Beverly Hills 90210 have to be excited to see one of their favorite actors return to where he belongs: prime-time on FOX. Beginning next Monday on the next new episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (or the following week…FOX is keeping The BAG’s appearance as secret as possible), Brian Austin Green will join the cast as a recurring character. We still have no idea of who his character is or what his motives are, only that he will be a major part of the remainder of Sarah Connor’s premiere season.
There is a popular sentiment out there that Brian Austin Green will be playing a terminator of some kind, but I don’t really believe it. Green doesn’t strike me as the type of guy who’d play a robot. Whoever he is, it’s going to be someone mysterious. We at BuddyTV got the chance to attend the premiere screening of Terminator down in Los Angeles and at the party afterwards, we ran into Green and asked him when his character would show up and who he was playing. He said that his character appears in episode four, but he couldn’t say who he’d be playing. He could only say that when his character does show up, it’s awesome. He couldn’t have been more excited about it.
And he wasn’t lying. Green was there with his girlfriend (the stunning Megan Fox, star of Transformers) and his excitement for being involved with the Terminator franchise was palpable. While most of the cast was mingling or talking to press on the red carpet, Green and Fox took their seats early, popcorn in hand, eagerly awaiting the premiere. It’s nice to see an actor have so much enthusiasm for a project he’s working on. I suppose you could argue that it’s really the first big thing Green has done since 90210 left the air, but it’s refreshing nonetheless.
