Max who? CW veteran Robbie tells HollywoodLife.com to expect major ‘sparks’ between Naomi and new-guy Jordan.
Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) didn’t have time to save her marriage on 90210 this season, and she clearly doesn’t have time to mourn it, either. Robbie Jones joins The CW drama for its final six episodes beginning March 11, and he tells HollywoodLife.com that “sparks start flying” between Naomi and his character, Jordan Welland.
“He has a media company, which releases books and does all kinds of different media things,” Robbie explains. “He comes in and starts working with AnnaLynne’s character, and they kind of hit it off.”
Robbie describes Jordan as being “upscale” with “a light side to him,” one I’m sure Naomi will have no trouble pulling out. Jordan’s story line “intertwines” with three or four other main characters’ plots, but Robbie says his connection to Naomi is by far the most important. Actually, the word he used was “steamy.”
“He’s a suit-and-tie guy, so he’s pretty driven, but there’s always room for a lady in his life,” Robbie tells me. “Sparks start flying. … It might get a little steamy.”
True CW junkies will remember that this is hardly Robbie’s first time at the rodeo. Not only did he star on the network’s short-lived cheerleader drama Hellcats but he also played Quentin on One Tree Hill for 13 episodes in 2008.
“The CW is a great place to be,” he says. “They’ve always supported me and shown a lot of love to me. It’s always a privilege to be back on there.”
(And we’re happy to have him back!)
