It's his first big TV series appearance since the WB's Twins.
(What, you don't remember that show? OK, so neither did we.)
Still, reliable sources confirm to me exclusively that Nick Lachey is heading to the CW for at least one episode of the fan-favorite series One Tree Hill later this season.
So who will he play? And which lovely Tree Hill lady will he be getting close to?
According to insiders, Nick will be playing a singer, former reality star and former boy bander who is dating Vanessa Minnillo.
(Yes, he is playing himself.)
In the storyline, a record label wants to buy one of Haley's (Bethany Joy Galeotti) songs that she wrote for Nick's new album, but she is hesitant to sell any of her music, so he will appear.
Nick has a new album coming out this spring called Coming Up for Air, which includes a duet he recorded with new American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.
What do you think of Nick coming to Tree Hill? Will you be watching?
