Best known as: Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210
Golden era: Early ‘90s
Then: As dude with a ‘tude Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210, Luke Perry convinced us that sideburns aren’t so bad. Although he was a tad old to be playing a teenager — he was 24 when the show began airing in 1990 — the eyebrow scar and that raspy voice made him super sexy.
Now: Even though there’s a new 90210, you won’t find Luke anywhere near that zip. Former castmates Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, and Shannen Doherty have made appearances on The CW’s reboot, but Luke isn’t having any of it. The divorced father of two still makes the guest-star rounds (Leverage, Law & Order: SVU), and he’s also done voiceover work for riveting shows such as Pound Puppies.
