Jesse McCartney, the actor/singer/songwriter has joined the cast of the ABC Family hit for the second season, the network has announced.
The ex-Summerland orphan will play the recurring role of Andy, a heavily recruited freshman jock who’ll be torn between rushing the KT and OX houses. The fact that he’s an old friend of Calvin’s may offer a clue as to which way he’ll ultimately swing. (Don’t read into my shameless double entendre, kids; Greek creator Sean Smith says Andy is of the straight persuasion.) — The Ausiello Files
Playing Andy, a high school pal of Paul James’ Calvin, McCartney’s character will, uh, fraternize with both Kappa Tau and Omega Chi as a coveted pledge.
McCartney, who has flexed his acting muscles on Summerland, isn’t the only new face at Cyrpus-Rhodes University. Ken Marino, he of Veronica Mars fame, will guest star in the mid-season opener as a summer camp counselor.
Greek will return to airwaves in spring 2009. — TV Guide
