Papa don't preach! 

Ally McBeal star James LeGros has been cast on Revenge's third season, we've exclusively learned. 

LeGros, who most recently appeared on HBO's hit series Girls, is set to join the ABC sudser in the recurring role of Father Paul when it returns in September. Father Paul will be introduced to viewers after Emily (Emily VanCamp) seeks him out; he also has ties to the Grayson family...never a good thing in the Hamptons!

LeGros has also appeared on Justified and Grey's Anatomy, as well as the miniseries Mildred Pierce and in films such as Point Break and Enemy of the State

This is just the latest new casting for Revenge's third season: We exclusively reported that Smallville's Justin Hartley landed the coveted role of Victoria's (Madeleine Stowe) long-lost son Patrick, Pan Am's Karine Vanisse will play a blast from Daniel's (Josh Bowman) past and The Bible's Diogo Morgado will guest star in the season premiere. 

But with new characters comes the exit of several key Revenge players, as Ashley (Ashley Madekwe) is set to exit the series this season and Declan (Connor Paolo) was killed off in the finale, while creator Mike Kelley stepped down as showrunner after season two. 

Revenge returns for its third season on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 9 p.m. on ABC.
