Justin gives HollywoodLife.com a peek at Austin’s future on ‘90210,’ from his relationship with Naomi to his massive daddy issues!
Austin (Justin Deeley) has been M.I.A. since his little fight with Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) in Vegas, but he’s back in all his cowboy glory on the Nov. 22 episode of 90210 — and he’s bringing the cavalry. “The Thanksgiving episode is fun,” Justin tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Naomi and Austin go to Griffith Park and ride horses, and everybody assumed I knew how to ride just because I’m from Kentucky.”
Justin also tells me we’ll discover a lot more about Austin later this season, and tonight’s episode merely “scratches the surface.”
“You’ll learn about his past and you’ll find out why he is the way he is,” Justin reveals. “You’ll also find out more about his relationship with his dad, who really seems to try to keep him down.”
The dad Justin is referring to is, of course, the one played by Billy Ray Cyrus on the big Vegas episode. Justin admits he was psyched to get to work with the music legend, and his expectations were more than met.
“Billy Ray is awesome,” he says. “‘Achy Breaky Heart,’ his first big-time song, came out when I was in maybe third grade. We had a talent show every year at my school, and that was the number one talent show song to do. So getting to meet him was cool. He was the most kind and genuine person. He looks you right in the eye when he talks to you and he’s full of wisdom.”
