Eric Winter Returns to ABC's "Brothers & Sisters"
He may not have landed a role of a regular just yet, but daytime soap hunk Eric Winter will return to ABC's "Brothers & Sisters" for one additional episode this season leaving gay fans of the show with a romantic cliffhanger.
In the season finale episode "Matriarchy" that features a gay bombshell of shocking proportions, Eric's character Jason McCallister and the drama's resident gay character Kevin Walker (Matthew Rhys) plan a party for their siblings.
Sure enough, when the two men get together that initial conflict (episode "Game Night", April 15) evolves into more bickering and by the end of the episode it explodes into a passionate make-out session.
Will there be future for Jason and Kevin? The same week Eric was cast for his role on "Brothers & Sisters" he also landed a role on CBS's Hugh Jackman produced pilot "Viva Laughlin." If the show makes it onto the air it would make it more complicated for Eric to have a recurring role on "Brothers & Sisters."
According to early buzz, the network likes and wants the CBS/Sony/BBC produced pilot, but the reception of focus groups has been very mixed, and other pilot projects have been sampled with more success.
