EXCLUSIVE: Scott Michael Foster, who starred in Crazy ex girlfriend, joined Netflix’s serial killer thriller You.
Foster, who played Nathaniel Plimpton III in The CW’s musical drama, will return in the drama’s third season, which stars Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti.
Foster, who also appeared in ABC’s Blood and oil, AMC Stop and catch fire and Showtime Californication, will play Ryan, a local television reporter. A valued single dad who has overcome a history of addiction, Ryan has secrets, including controlling and calculating behavior he reserves for those close to him and anyone who gets in his way.
He joins new cast members Adam Speedman, Travis Van Winkle and Shalita Grant as well as Saffron Burrows, who has been promoted to series regular, Dylan Arnold and Tati Gabrielle.
Developed by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, You is based on Caroline Kepnes’ bestselling books You and Hidden Bodies. In the second season, Joe Goldberg (Badgley) moves from New York to Los Angeles to escape his past, and leaves with a new identity. Fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder, the last thing he expects is meeting an amazing new woman but he falls in love again – with a woman named Love (Pedretti). Does history repeat itself? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe is just crazy enough to risk finding out.
The series is produced by Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. Gamble is showrunner and executive product with Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo, Silver Tree, Michael Foley and Justin Lo.
Foster is replaced by ICM Partners, Thruline Entertainment and Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson & Christopher.
