How Luke Perry’s Rodeo Movie ‘8 Seconds’ Illuminated Life Outside the 90210

How Luke Perry’s Rodeo Movie ‘8 Seconds’ Illuminated Life Outside the 90210
When Luke Perry died on Monday at age 52 after suffering a stroke last week, most fans instantly thought of his role as the heartthrob Dylan McKay on the Nineties megahit and cultural phenomenon Beverly Hills 90210. It was as iconic a role in modern television as they come and one Perry would be synonymous with, however reluctantly, throughout his life.

Still, despite the overall significance of Beverly Hills 90210, Perry’s roles in cult films like 1992’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 1997’s The Fifth Element and, especially, 1994’s 8 Seconds have had a

Luke Perry, Always Game to Spoof His Teen Heartthrob Persona, Would Have Loved the ‘90210’ Revival

Just last week, fans of Fox’s beloved teen soap “Beverly Hills, 90210” were thrilled by the announcement that a long-rumored revival was official in the works. That same day, actor and original star Luke Perry suffered a massive stroke, a medical emergency that led to his untimely death five days later. Even though the actor had not signed on to be a part of the series, there was still hope that he’d participate, as the new take on the beloved series was still in the early stages of development. After all, the revival has a twist that seemed perfect for Perry’s sensibilities: The actors are playing themselves.

In the revival, original stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, and Tori Spelling will return — not to reprise their roles on the primetime soap that made them famous — but to play irreverent, heightened versions of their real-life selves.

Entertainment News: Luke Perry of ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ Dies at 52

Los Angeles – His image, as a brooding heartthrob on the Fox-tv series “Beverly Hills, 90210,” was reflective of the early 1990s. Luke Perry represented both the image and the show, and he died on March 4th, 2019, after suffering a massive stroke on February 27th. He was only 52 years old.

Coy Luther “Luke” Perry III was born in Mansfield, Ohio, and set out for Los Angeles after graduating high school. He found work in soap operas in 1987 and ’88, with “Loving” and “Another World.” But he broke out big in 1990 as Dylan McKay on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” for his role as an outsider character in a high school gang that included Brandon Walsh (Jason Priestley), Brenda Walsh (Shannon Doherty), Kelly Taylor (Jenny Garth) and Steve Sanders (Ian Ziering). He left after Season Six, but came back to finish with the series for Seasons Nine and Ten.

Luke Perry Was Way Too Cool for Me, But He Still Loaned Me His Jean Jacket (Guest Blog)

Luke Perry Was Way Too Cool for Me, But He Still Loaned Me His Jean Jacket (Guest Blog)
A little over 25 years ago, I spent some time with Luke Perry for a cover story in a now-defunct magazine. This was back in the days of “Beverly Hills, 90210,” when he was getting mobbed everywhere and had to be snuck out of mall appearances in a laundry hamper.

I remember sitting in my room at the Sunset Marquis while I waited for Luke to show up for the first interview and worrying that he wasn’t the kind of guy who would like me — i.e., I was a shy nerd and he had those sideburns and also a pot-bellied pig for a pet.

I was surprised to find how real and funny he was, how skeptical he was of his sudden fame, how he thought the whole laundry-hamper thing had probably been staged without his knowing.

He thought about taking me to a strip club for the first interview,

Jerry Seinfeld Tells Norm Macdonald ‘The Greatest Jew Joke I’ve Ever Heard’ — Watch

Jerry Seinfeld Tells Norm Macdonald ‘The Greatest Jew Joke I’ve Ever Heard’ — Watch
They weren’t in cars getting coffee, but on Friday night Jerry Seinfeld and Norm Macdonald had a funny — and somewhat puzzling — exchange on the latter’s show.

Though best known for his “What’s the deal with…” style of observational humor, Seinfeld is no stranger to more heady fare. Case in point: what he describes as “the greatest Jew joke that I’ve ever heard,” though it comes with a catch: Macdonald and other non-Jews might not get it. “That’s the joke, is that you won’t get it.”

“The setup of the joke is that it’s a Jew joke,” Seinfeld explains before actually telling it: “Two gentile businessman meet on the street. One of them says, ‘How’s business?’ The other one says, ‘Great!'” Macdonald is nonplussed, while his co-host Adam Egert (who,

The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80's!

Back at the beginning of July in the daily Briefs, I started the Official snicks Top 100 Lost Hits of The 80's, spotlighting the 100 greatest minor hits of that decade. The songs you don't hear on any 80's nostalgia show.

Listen: More Of Mj's Slurred Speech Revealed At Trial
Prosecutors played a recording Wednesday in which a rambling Michael Jackson says in slurred language that he plans to build a hospital for children with proceeds from his comeback concerts. Here is a transcript of the recording made by Dr. Conrad Murray, the defendant in the involuntary manslaughter case.

Jackson: "Elvis didn't do it. Beatles didn't do it. We have to be phenomenal. When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, I've never seen nothing like this in my life.

How Steve Nash Shines in Basketball--and Business

Patrik Giardino

Patrik Giardino

Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash shines brightest during on-court chaos, and he's got a plan to do the same in business.

Twelve seconds left in the season opener.

Phoenix Suns 107, Los Angeles Clippers 107.Twelve seconds for Steve Nash to find a way to win.The Phoenix coaches outline a plan. Suns' ball. Nash, the team's wily point guard, will let the clock nearly expire before executing a play. As Nash dribbles, Clippers point guard Baron Davis defends him closely. Guarding against the very play the Suns called. Guarding against Nash going right. Nash abandons the plan and darts left. Time to make up a new play. On the fly.

To watch Steve Nash is to observe someone uncannily at ease with change. Rapid change. Whenever possible, he plays on the run, starting a fast break rather than a set play, orchestrating a free-form attack. What
