Exclusive: Make It or Break It's Zachary Abel Gets Awkward. for MTV

Zachary Abel is trading in the world of gymnastics for the one full of keggers and angst.

The cast member of ABC Family’s Make It or Break It will guest star on two episodes of MTV’s new comedy show Awkward. (Tuesdays, 11/10c), TVLine has learned exclusively.

First airing Sept. 6, Abel will play the older bro of Beau Mirchoff’s Matty, who has thus far remained a bit of a mystery, even as he grows closer to the once-invisible Jenna (played by Ashley Rickards). The introduction of Abel opens the door to “learn a bit more” about Matty and his home life, teases creator Lauren Iungerich.

“[Zach’s] very funny,” Iungerich raves of the casting. “We all sort of had crushes on him when he came to shoot his episodes.”

Awkward. chronicles the highs and lows of being a teen, something Abel knows a thing or two about having been caught in a love triangle of his own as Make It or Break It‘s Carter.
