Cougar Town Exclusive: Meet Laurie's New Beau!

Although ABC still has yet to schedule Cougar Town’s long-awaited third season premiere — March is the latest I’ve heard — the upcoming storylines are continuing to pile up. The latest: Laurie’s getting a boyfriend!

Edwin Hodge has been cast in the recurring role of Wade, a U.S. soldier who gets involved with Busy Philipps’ soft-hearted bigmouth. But, because he’s stationed in the Middle East, the lovebirds are forced to communicate via Skype (with a little help from Travis).

“Who is Hodge?” you ask. In addition to being the elder brother of Leverage‘s Aldis Hodge, he’s probably best known from his gig as Jack’s BFF on Jack & Bobby. His credits also include Fox’s short-lived Mental and ABC’s Invasion.

So, looking forward to Cougar Town’s return? Do you think ABC’s hurt it by delaying it for so long, or done it a favor by making us realize how much we miss it when it’s gone?
