One Tree Hill fans, prepare to be excited about this casting news! And fans of very attractive men, you will also be into it.

Robert Buckley (666 Park Avenue, OTH alum), has been cast in an upcoming episode of the CW's Hart of Dixie, we've exclusively learned. And he'll be connecting with one of our leading ladies, so maybe he'll be sticking around for longer?

Buckley will play Peter, a sweet, ordinary guy who is just passing through Bluebell, and he has a chance encounter with Lemon (Jaime King). Last season, Lemon losing her queen bee status with the Belles caused some of her sass to disappear, so maybe Peter will bring back the season-one Lemon we all know and love. Nothing like a good, old-fashioned hookup to put the pep back in your step!

Right now Buckley is only scheduled for one episode, but he's so handsome, Hart of Dixie will have to keep him around for more, right?

Besides his role as Clay with the creepiest stalker ever on One Tree Hill and playwright Brian in the short-lived 666 Park Avenue, Buckley has also appeared on episodes of Revenge and Privileged. Before landing a recurring role on One Tree Hill, he was a series regular on NBC's Lipstick Jungle.

Hart of Dixie's third season premiers Monday, Oct. 7 on the CW.
