"I look back on getting this real-life story line as a blessing," the actor told TVLine.com. "To be able to simultaneously take on a challenging role and bring awareness to a relevant social issue was a win-win for me. I'm looking forward to what opportunities and adventures lie ahead." Co-stars Lori Loughlin and Ryan Eggold likewise won't be returning for season four as previously reported.


COVERT AFFAIRS (USA) - Jaimie Alexander ("Thor") has booked a three-episode arc on the show's second season, which launches tomorrow night on the cable channel.

Said effort launches Thursday, July 14. No auspices were given.


UNTITLED KEVIN SMITH PROJECT (AMC, New!) - Writer/director Kevin Smith is developing a reality series set at his New Jersey comic book store, The Secret Stash. "Have you ever wanted to work in a comic book shop?" reads the casting notice. "Silent Bob himself, Kevin Smith, is casting a new television series set in his comic shop 'The Secret Stash.' He's not looking for actors, he's looking for real people who live and breath the comic book lifestyle. Must be funny outgoing and have a knowledge and passion for comics, superheroes, movie memorabilia and everything that goes with it." Said call adds they're also looking for "people in the Tri-state area with cool, unique, rare, or otherwise awesome comic book/movie memorabilia.
