Casting Scoop: American Dreams Actor Heads to The Secret Circle

The Secret Circle Frank Ockenfels III/ The CW

Breaking: A hot actor is coming to the CW. You're shocked, we know, but that network really could use some eye candy, no?

We've learned that a very attractive American Dreams alum will be paying a visit to Chance Harbor's coven of witches on The Secret Circle and has a close connection with one of our resident witches. A family connection. Dun-dun-dun!

So who's the new guy in town? And who is he related to?

Melissa's cousin is coming to town!

We've exclusively learned that Arlen Escarpeta, best known for his portrayal of Sam Walker on American Dreams, is set to play Holden (Catcher in the Rye reference?), Melissa's relative who is no stranger to Chance Harbor.

Holden is described as smart, funny and great looking (obviously), but a difficult past has made him tough inside and out. He's set to make his return to the witchy town in episode nine.

While we can't tell you what brings Holden to town, we can tell you that you might find out why he decides to pay a visit after watching tonight's episode, Slither, which you can see two scenes from right here.

Escarpeta recently appeared in the horror films Final Destination 5 and Friday the 13th, so he'll feel right at home on the increasingly scary Secret Circle.

The Secret Circle airs tonight at 9 p.m. on the CW.

What do you think brings Melissa's cousin Holden to town? Sound off in the comments!
