Casting Scoop: Hobbit Star Joins Brothers & Sisters

In real life, they are super lovey-dovey sweethearts who just got hitched. But on screen, it looks like things are going to get more complicated for Dave Annable and new bride Odette Yustman on ABC's Brothers &Sisters.

In real life, they are super lovey-dovey sweethearts who just got hitched. But on screen, it looks like things are going to get more complicated for Dave Annable and new bride Odette Yustman on ABC's Brothers &Sisters. Sources tell me a certain Hobbit star has just been cast as a third party in the mix:

Rob Kazinsky.

And no, he's not related to John Krasinski but seems equally charming--which would explain why, according to sources, Dave's character Justin will have some issues.

Rob has been cast as "Dr. Rick," an ex-boyfriend of Annie's (Odette) who makes Justin jealous. So far only one episode has been locked down, but Rob may stick around for more.

A British actor who starred in EastEnders, Rob has been cast in The Hobbit films (the Lord of the Rings prequel--maybe you've heard of it?) as Fili.

I'm also told that Odette will be staying on Brothers &Sisters for a good while. So apparently there is chemistry there! Who knew?

Are you digging Justin's storyline post-Rebecca (Emily VanCamp)? Let me know what you think of the new B&S triangle in the comments!
