'Privileged' Casting Coup: Rose Falls for a Franco!

No, not James Franco — the next best thing: his younger sib!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Dave Franco, the up-and-coming brother of movie star James, is joining Privileged for a multi-episode arc. He’ll play a love interest for Rose (Lucy Hale).

Franco’s previous credits include Fox’s short-lived comedy debacle Do Not Disturb and ABC Family’s awesome Greek.

His Privileged arc kicks off in early ’09.

In related news, I’m still waiting on that back-nine pickup. Yes, Dawn Ostroff, I’m talking to you. (Additional reporting by Oriana Schwindt)

    I guess those acting lessons from James are paying off ;D

    Love Greek! I would discourage you of begging Dawn Ostroff for anything, but then I remembered that she probably likes Privileged, as it’s nothing like Supernatural, which she seems to hate. So maybe she’ll listen to you!
