Pseudo All My Children reunion alert! Former ABC daytime stud Justin Bruening has found himself a (temporary) new home on Sarah Michelle Gellar’s new fall series, Ringer.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Bruening will appear in multiple episodes of The CW’s buzzy drama as Tyler, a young man who sets his sights on Siobhan aka one of the twin sisters being played by Gellar. It must be noted that the Knight Rider alum’s character brings the list of Siobhan’s sexy suitors to a whopping three, including her hubby (played by Fantastic Four‘s Ioan Gruffudd) and illicit lover (Life Unexpected‘s Kristoffer Polaha).

  • Thank goodness. The promos feature Gellar with a bunch of schlubby old dudes; it’s like “Buffy’s Men of A Certain Age.” The show desperately needs an cute boy injection, stat.

    • I think all of the guys fit into the cute guy category. I mean, old? They’re in their 30s. I particularly find Ioan attractive, but then maybe it’s the accent. And he did play a really hot Lancelot in “King Arthur.”

  • Justin is one of the hottest guys on TV. The other two Ringer guys are great, as well, but this dude takes the cuteness factor up several notches.
