Thiessen Latest Beautiful Person to Meet 'Brian'

Add one more name to the list of highly attractive people appearing on "What About Brian" this season: Tiffani Thiessen.

The former "Saved by the Bell" and "Beverly Hills, 90210" star is joining the ABC show's cast as a regular in the coming weeks, the network says. She'll play a character named Natasha Dylan, a one-time intern of Dave's (Rick Gomez) who's now his boss as the videogame company where he works.

ABC describes the character as "sexy, manipulative and a shrewd businesswoman who loves playing mind games and will stop at nothing to continue her success," so we're guessing Thiessen will be more in "90210"-Valerie Malone mode than the sweet Kelly Kapowski from her "Saved by the Bell" years.

The network also hints that she'll become entwined in the lives of all the principal characters, notably Brian (Barry Watson) and Adam (Matthew Davis).

Thiessen joins a list of uncommonly attractive people, even by TV standards, to appear on the show this year. Rachelle Lefevre and Krista Allen are currently playing recurring parts on the show, and former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Stacy Keibler and Jessica Szohr will also be joining the show soon. Presumably Sarah Lancaster, who's currently absent from the show but remains in the opening credits, will be back at some point too.

In addition to "Saved by the Bell" and "90210," Thiessen starred in FOX's "Fastlane" a few seasons back and had recurring parts on "Good Morning, Miami" and "Two Guys and a Girl." She also appeared in Woody Allen's "Hollywood Ending."
