He really didn't want to do it either. He was angry, going broke and near desperate when he went back to the show years after he left the first time. These shows are catch 22's he was typed cast but at the same time he was a no body before 90210 and his career wasn't really going anywhere. Thay doesn't mean he wouldn't have hot in something else down the line. The guy was NEVER happy. I get that he didn't wanna do the Rebooted, reboot but man stressing yourself out to the point of death by massive stroke isn't the way to go.
