He'll play Charles, "a bright but nerdy youth, the "internet whiz kid" of Morristown. Charles has been hired as an intern/assistant for new team sportscaster, Jim Brockmire.

FIRST WIVES CLUB, THE (TV Land) - Vanessa Lachey ("Truth Be Told") has booked a lead role on the comedy pilot, a reboot of the 1996 feature.

But when she reconnects with her old friends after the death of their college roommate, she realizes she may not be as ready to settle down as she thought." (Deadline.com)

Since retiring from the Marines, Rathford has led a reclusive life, until Swagger seeks out his former mentor. But breaking through to the grizzled and guarded veteran will not be easy." (EW.com)
YOUNGER (TV Land) - India de Beaufort ("Blood & Oil") is the latest to book a role on the new season. She'll play Radha, "an Indian woman who begins dating Charles (Peter Hermann)." (Deadline.com)
