Luke Perry has signed on with the ensemble cast of HBO's new drama John From Cincinnati.
Perry had done a guest shot in the Cincinnati pilot and has now signed on to be a regular on the series, which began production this month for an anticipated summer premiere date. The series, from Deadwood creator David Milch, revolves around southern California's surfing culture and a dysfunctional family. Bruce Greenwood, Rebecca De Mornay, Ed O'Neill, and Luis Guzman also star.
Perry, best known for his stint on Fox's Beverly Hills, 90210, most recently starred in the short-lived NBC drama Windfall. He also starred the Showtime sci-fi series Jeremiah from 2002-04.
