'90210': 'Jersey Shore's' Vinny Guadagnino to guest star

js-vinny-gi.jpgBecause nothing says Beverly Hills like a fist-pumping Italian American from Staten Island, Vinny Guadagnino has signed on to guest star in an upcoming episode of "90210."

According to TVLine, the "Jersey Shore" won't be playing himself, but a celebrity who gets involved in a high-stakes poker game with Liam ( Matt Lanter) in Las Vegas.

We're not surprised. When Zap2it talked to Vinny in early September, he mentioned that he's been taking acting classes and hoped to transition into an acting career. Well, looks like all that GTL is paying off.
