CW’s 90210 alum Matt Lanter has made his return to the hit network in new sci-fi series Star Crossed.

Matt plays an extraterrestrial teen who falls in love with a human girl when he and six others of his kind are integrated into a suburban high school.

Leading many fans to favorably call the show “Vampire Diaries with aliens.”

So how does Matt feel about the comparison?

“I can see why people are saying that,” Matt shares. “It has that sci fi cool element, it’s got a romance triangle I think people are going to dig. But, I keep saying, it’s a mix between Romeo and Juliet with a bit of District Nine mixed with Brown v. the Board of Education.”
