The Hamptons is about to welcome Hot Jesus! 

Diogo Morgado, who played Jesus Christ on the hit miniseries The Bible, is set to guest star on Revenge's upcoming third season, E! News has confirmed. 

Morgado will appear in the ABC hit's Sept. 29 premiere as Dr. Jorge Velez. The Portuguese actor turned heads after History Channel miniseries debuted to 13.1 million viewers and "Hot Jesus" became a worldwide trending topic. Of the trending topic, executive producer Mark Burnett told us, "Listen, whatever attracts the biggest, youngest audience!"

TV Line first reported the news of Morgado's casting.

Morgado is just the latest new face to be cast for season three. We exclusively reported that Justin Hartley (SmallvilleEmily Owens M.D.) has signed on to play the long-lost son of Victoria (Madeleine Stowe), and Pan Am's Karine Vanisse will take on the role of a mysterious woman from Daniel's (Josh Bowman) past.

Not returning for season three? Ashley Madekwe (Ashley) and Connor Paolo (Declan) are not returning as series regulars, while Mike Kelley, the series creator, will not be returning as showrunner with writer Sunil Nayar taking over.

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