It’s no secret that Lifetime’s ‘Drop Dead Diva’ is known for its guest-stars - so far this season Natalie Hall, Sandra Bernhard, Brigid Brannagh and Reiko Aylesworth have all shown up on the series. Well, the show is getting one more hunky actor with the addition of Trevor Donovan, The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reveals.
The ‘90210’ alum will play Keith aka the worst “best man” ever, as the groom ends up in prison across the border. Yikes! Somehow Keith will end up in the courtroom, and will come “to his friend’s rescue with an embarrassing courtroom confession that leads him to dropping his pants in open court.” I don’t think Donovan's fans will complain about that! It still remains unclear how Jane (Brooke Elliott), Kim (Kate Levering) or Grayson (Jackson Hurst) will be involved.
Josh Berman, executive producer and creator of the dramedy, is excited for Donovan’s appearance and told The Hollywood Reporter, "I've been a big fan of Trevor Donovan since ‘90210.’ In this ‘Drop Dead Diva’ with a ‘Hangover’-esque twist, I thought he'd be the perfect best man, who, with the best of intentions, gets the groom in a heap of trouble during an out-of-control bachelor party."
Donovan is best known for playing Teddy Montgomery on The CW’s ‘90210.’ His character made headlines after coming out as gay. The show definitely received its criticisms, but Donovan brought a refreshing and real storyline to the series. Most recently, Donovan appeared on Lifetime’s other sexy drama ‘The Client List,’ as one of Riley’s (Jennifer Love Hewitt) massage clients with an interesting dessert fetish.
You can catch Donovan on the Aug. 11 episode (the summer finale) at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime. ‘Drop Dead Diva’ will return with new episodes on Sunday, Oct. 6.
