According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jessica Lucas will be joining the cast of the CW's new Melrose Place.

Lucas will play Riley Richmond. She's a well off 24-year-old who also works as an inner-city elementary school teacher. Her character is engaged to Jonah (Michael Rady) but she isn't sure she is going to marry him.

Lucas originally played a recurring character on CW's new 90210. The Riley character is completely unrelated.
