Josh Hopkins is headed back to ABC.
The Cougar Town stud, who dutifully followed his Courteney Cox-front sitcom to TBS, will be replacing Dougray Scott on the the Alphabet Network’s upcoming Quantico. He will play a staff counselor working with new agent trainees.
Furthermore, he will be under his old partner played by Aunjanue Ellis, who is now the assistant director of the FBI academy – so you know there is going to be some tension there.
Maybe, even, some of the sexy variety.
Quantico is expected to premiere in the fall.
Update: A loss for The CW has turned into a win for ABC.
Flash star Rick Cosnett has landed a recurring part on Quantico. He will play an openly gay, super-funny former defense attorney who knows how to use his ability for rhetoric against FBI cases.
