Something handsome this way comes!
The 4400 star Joel Gretsch is set to join Lifetime's highly anticipated new drama Witches of East End, E! News has exclusively learned. Gretsch is set to take on the role of Victor, a mysterious doctor who has an unknown connection to the Beauchamp family of witches, Joanna (Julia Ormond), Freya (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) and Ingrid (Rachel Boston).
Gretsch is currently set to appear in two episodes of the witchy drama, with the charming and roguish Victor making his debut in the penultimate episode of the season.
In addition to playing Tom Baldwin on The 4400, Gretsch starred as Father Jack Landry on ABC's sci-fi cult hit V. He also has made appearances on NCIS, Burn Notice, The United States of Tara and The Client List, as well as National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
Based on Melissa de la Cruz's book series of the same name, Witches of East End centers on Ormond's Joanna Beauchamp and her two daughters Freya (Dewan-Tatum), a wild-child bartender, and Ingrid (Boston), a shy librarian, both of whom are unknowingly the family's next generation of witches. Also set to star in the highly anticipated series are Eric Winter as Freya's rich playboy beau Dash, Daniel DiTomasso as Dash's enigmatic brother Killian, and Mädchen Amick as Joanna's estranged sister Wendy, who returns after learning of a new threat that could change the family's fate forever.
Witches of East End premieres Sunday, Oct. 6 at 10 p.m. on Lifetime.
