Those producers over at Brothers & Sisters sure have a thing for real-life chemistry!
First, back when Dave Annable (Justin) was dating Emily Van Camp, who played his onscreen sibling Rebecca, they made it so their characters were no longer related so they could hook them up on the show.
And now, Dave is engaged to actress Odette Yustman (starring in this Friday's theatrical release You Again with Kristen Bell and Betty White), and sources tell me exclusively that Odette has just been cast on Brothers & Sisters as:
Yep, you guessed it. Dave's new love interest!
Spoiler alert if you didn't know: Emily Van Camp is leaving Brothers & Sisters this season, so sadly, all is not well in the marriage of Rebecca and Justin.
I'm told Odette has been cast as a nurse who starts to fall for Justin, as he's still mending his broken heart from his split with Rebecca. So far, Odette has only been slated for one episode, but it could be more.
Meanwhile, the B&S fifth-season premiere on Sept. 26 is sounding more and more intriguing. Spoiler alert: The storyline will jump ahead one year from the car crash in which we last saw all the Walkers, and you'll be surprised at how much some of them have changed...not to mention who's in the picture and who is out.
What do you think of Odette and Dave bringing their real-life magic to the small screen?
