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 drama Witches 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.

Recently, Prinze Jr. also booked a guest spot on the season premiere of Bones.

Witches of East End will premiere on Sunday, October 6 at 10:00 pm.

His stint on Fox’s crime comedy-drama series marks his first TV role since an appearance in a 2010 episode of Psych.

Prinze will portray covert CIA agent Danny, an old associate of Booth’s (David Boreanaz) who has an interest in Booth and Brennan’s murder investigation in the Sept. 16 premiere episode.

Although he’s only scheduled to appear in one episode, there is potential for Prinze to return later in the season, according to TV Line, who first reported the news of his casting.

Aside from his short-lived ABC sitcom Freddie, Prinze’s past TV credits include arcs on 24 and Boston Legal.

Prinze married Sarah Michelle Gellar in 2002 and the couple have two children together, Charlotte, 3, and Rocky, 10 months old.

Bones returns for its ninth season on Monday, September 16 at 8:00 pm on Fox.

Barerra to Guest Star on Grimm’s La Llorona-Themed Episode

This upcoming pre-Halloween weekend is looking pretty grimm for David Barerra

The Mexican American actor is set to guest star on a NBC’s supernatural crime drama Grimm, which takes place in a world where characters inspired by Grimms’ Fairy Tales exist.

David Barrera

Barrera will appear on the show’s Halloween-themed episode, which will feature an appearance by telenovela star Kate del Castillo as a mysterious detective from Albuquerque searching for a child abductor.

The episode, titled “La Llorona,” is loosely based on the Latin American legend of a woman who drowned her children. According to legend, a beautiful woman named Maria kills her children by drowning them; in order to be with the man she loves. When he rejects her, she kills herself. Challenged at the gates of heaven as to the whereabouts of her children, she isn’t permitted to enter the afterlife until she finds them. So Maria is forced to wander the earth for all eternity, searching in vain for her drowned offspring, with her constant weeping giving her the name La Llorona.

Barrera will portray a resident named Luis Alvarez, whose son is taken by La Llorona.

“The detectives and I spend the rest of the episode searching for him and trying to catch La Llorona,” says Barrera of his guest role. “It’s a really creepy episode, especially if you grew up with the legend of La Llorona.”

The deeper Grimm’s main character Nick (David Giuntoli) digs into the case, the more he realizes the pattern of the kidnapping matches those in the famed “La Llorona” legend, a story with its roots intertwined with his own family’s Grimm history.

Barrera – whose television credits include appearances on Heroes, CSI: Miami, Boston Legal, Medium, Nip/Tuck and 24 – enjoyed sharing screen time with his fellow guest star del Castillo.

“Kate was a really nice and approachable person,” says Barrera. “I had met her once before on the set of the PBS series American Family. She was really easy to talk to and is a very talented lady.”

The spooktacular episode featuring Barrera and del Castillo will air 9:00 pm on NBC. Friday, October 26 at 9:00 pm on NBC.
