"Brothers and Sisters" Spoilers: Chad Stays Longer, Scotty Returns
"Sex and the City" star Jason Lewis begins his guest starring stint on ABC's "Brothers and Sisters" this Sunday and it has just been reported his storyline has now been extended from 4 to 7 episodes. Also, Canadian-born actor Luke MacFarlane is coming back for a special February sweeps episode "Valentine's Day Massacre".
Former "Absolut Hunk" Lewis is, as previously reported, joining the show this week as a closeted soap opera actor Chad and a romantic interest for the show's openly gay character Kevin Walker (Matthew Rhys).
In addition to being closeted Chad also has a girlfriend (Roxy Olin, producer Ken Olin's and star Patricia Wettig's daughter).
The writers are apparently satisfied with the execution of the storyline and have now extended Jason Lewis' role. That means he will remain on the show through early April.
In the meantime, Luke MacFarlane who played Kevin's boyfriend Scotty Wandell in 7 early episodes is coming back for Valentine's Day. According to spoilers, Kevin runs into Scotty somewhere in L.A. and they go to a bar together and get drunk.
Perhaps Kevin will be very frustrated in his new relationship with the closeted actor and happy to see Scotty again.
