Posted on

Torispellingclayaiken_lThe CW has announced a list of guest stars and big-name for The CW directors for March sweeps and beyond.

My top two must-sees from the release:

90210, April 14: “Tori Spelling returns to Beverly Hills in her original role as Donna Martin! Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody guest stars as herself. Jennie Garth also guest stars.”
America’s Next Top Model, April 8: “Recording artist Clay Aiken appears as a guest judge during an acting class.”

(Note: Jason Priestley directing 90210 on April 7 might’ve made my list if it also involved a cameo). After the jump, the full list of spoiler-ific guests for Gossip Girl, 90210, One Tree Hill, America’s Next Top Model, Smallville, Everybody Hates Chris, and The Game. Any of these got you psyched?
