Freddie Prinze Jr. will be bewitching television audiences this fall…
The 37-year-old part-Puerto Rican actor will be guest starring in an episode of the upcoming Lifetime dramaWitches of East End, in a part that will reunite him with his former Freddie co-star Madchen Amick.
Prinze Jr. will portrayLeo Wingate, a gallant and sweetly shy entomologist who falls head over heels for Wendy Beauchamp (Amick). Prinze Jr.’s character is said to specialize in rare and exotic insects, and he soon begins to wonder whether Wendy is more interested in his body or his bugs.
He’s set to guest star in the new series’ fourth episode, with more appearances possible.
On Freddie, a 2005-06 ABC comedy which starred and was created by Prinze Jr., Amick played the sister-in-law of the title character. Following the cancellation of that show, Prinze’s next high-profile TV gig was on Fox’s 24, where he played Cole Ortiz during the eighth season.
Freddie Prinze Jr. could be heading back to television in the near future…
The 36-year-old part-Puerto Rican actor, who starred in ABC’s short-lived Freddie back in 2005-2006, has joined the cast of an untitled comedy pilot for NBC.
The single-camera project centers on Agnes (Sarah Wright), a shy, focused woman who, after being dumped by her fiancé Noah (Prinze), leans on her co-workers at Pharmville to help her come out of her shell and plot her revenge.
Prinze’s character Noah also works at Pharmville, but he’s worked his way up from “lab rat” to the corporate office. Engaged to Agnes for two years, and romantically involved for four, he has decided to break up with her because his new job has suddenly given him the chance to be new Noah, and new Noah is about easy laughs and good times. He’s ready to come out of his nerd shell, and part of that shell is Agnes.
In addition to Wright, Prinze also joins the previously cast actors Mena Suvari and Kyle Howard.
Following Freddie, Prinze had guest-starring roles on 24 and Psych.
