‘90210’ cast continues to grow

Hilary Duff says no to zip code

Shenae Grimes and Lori Loughlin have snagged two of the lead female roles on the CW’s “Beverly Hills, 90210” remake.

Grimes, a regular on Canadian skein “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” has landed the key role of Annie Mills, a Kansas teen who relocates to California. Character is the spiritual descendant of the role played by Shannen Doherty in the original “90210.”

Thesp landed the role after word leaked out that CBS Par Network TV and the CW had sent singer-thesp Hilary Duff a copy of the pilot script, with an eye on having her play Annie. News of the offer surfaced last week on various websites, including E! Online.

By Monday morning, however, Duff’s camp informed producers that the actress wasn’t interested in taking the role. Decision wasn’t based on the quality of the script; it had more to do the kinds of parts Duff is looking to tackle, one person familiar with the conversations said.

Loughlin, meanwhile, is set to play Celia Mills, mom of Annie. Thesp is best known for her lengthy gig on ABC’s “Full House.” More recently, she starred in the short-lived WB sudser “Summerland” and lends her voice to “Grand Theft Auto IV.”
