Joe E. Tata Kisses and Tells How He Came to the New 90210


At the time of the kisses, Tata was presiding over a Peach Pit-themed breakfast to promote the 90210 spinoff at the TCA press tour. Besides his more romantic inclinations, Tata also chatted with me a bit about his return to the Zip code that made him famous. Here are some highlights:


What was it like getting the call saying, "We're bringing 90210 back, and we want Nat"?

I was on the ceiling. First of all, when I heard that they always said, "We're gonna do a movie." Well, eight years went by, and I'm still waiting for the movie! Where's this movie?


What have you been doing for the past eight years?

I went to Europe, did a couple of films there. I was so glad to come home.


There was a rumor seven or eight years ago that you were going to open up a string of Peach Pit restaurants. What happened there?

We had a giant, big attorney. It took too long. . . . We had the plans and everything done, and then, the attorneys!
