AnnaLynne McCord to Join ‘Dallas’ Next Season

Will she enjoy the Southfork pool too?

AnnaLynne McCord will guest star on several episodes of “Dallas” next season as Heather, Jesse Metcalfe’s new on-screen love interest. Here’s how TNT, which announced the news today, describes the character:

[A] 20-something ranch hand with a troubled ex-husband and a 5-year-old son. Having grown up in a house with four brothers, Heather is quite capable of handling herself around the Southfork ranch hands, but when her ex-husband returns, bringing turmoil back into her life, Christopher steps in, helping Heather resolve the conflict, and the two become involved in a romantic relationship.

Together again?

In a recent tweet, “Dallas” writer Aaron Allen said the character is “tough and plucky and wouldn’t put up with a man who cheats on his wife.” I guess that rules out any involvement with John Ross, huh?

McCord starred as Naomi on the CW’s “90210” revival. Her character shared a few scenes with Josh Henderson when he guest starred on that show in 2008 and 2009.

TNT hasn’t announced other casting decisions, including who will play Nicholas, another new character coming to the show in Season 3.

    WOW!! What a great addition!! Look forward to it. I have a feeling Season 3 will be exceptional, what with the existing and new cast! Can’t wait!!

    • I agree, Kelley. AnnaLynne McCord is a terrific actress and easily the best thing about the “90210” revival. I’m glad she’s upgraded to a better zip code.

  2. Exciting! She was one of my favorites on the 90210 reboot.

    This charcter seems reminiscent of the single dad ranch hand from the Lost Boy episode of original Dallas.I’m assuming we will get some heart warming scenes of Christopher interacting with her little boy that will highlight Christopher’s yearning to be a father.

  4. Annalynne is the reason why I fell into Dallas reload, when i heard about this, I immediately downloaded all.the season 1 and 2.. i was hooked and polished both seasons within 3 days.. i dont know which channel they show this in Australia.. but the show is addictive.. always loved Annalynne performance from Nip Tuck to 90210.. i can’t wait to see how her character will unfold on Dallas.. seriously I would watch this show with or without Larry Hagman, bring on the next generation of Dallas..
