Austin Nichols is off the market! The Ray Donovan star and One Tree Hill alum is dating Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Chloe Bennet, E! News has learned exclusively. The new couple have made no attempt to hide their new romance, as they were seen making out at a bar in Hollywood just a few weeks ago.

Things are going so well that Nichols has already met his 21-year-old girlfriend's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. costars. Actress Elizabeth Henstridge, who plays Jemma Simmons on the new ABC series, tweeted a picture from their group outing on Sunday, Sept. 15. "Things that get better with age; cheese, wine and laser tag," Henstridge wrote in the photo caption.

Nichols, 33, was previously in an on-and-off relationship with his One Tree Hill costar Sophia Bush from 2006 to 2012. Bennet, meanwhile, briefly dated her Nashville costar Sam Palladio—and he confirmed their breakup at the Runner Runner premiere in Las Vegas on Wednesday, Sept. 18. "I am not dating anyone at the moment. I am single," Palladio told E! News. "Not married and no attachments as of yet!"
