The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning. No further details will be released at this time.”

Fellow 90210 cast mate Ian Ziering was the first to comment on Twitter.


This is so crazy. Luke Perry was legit the coolest human being on the planet when I was in high school. There was no one cooler.

Literally 90% of high school and college age males in the 90’s had these exact same sideburns!


And his voicemail answering machine message!!!
