Revenge Scoop: Rome Star to Romance Victoria

It’s out with the old (later, Conrad) and in with the new (hello, hunk from Rome!) for Victoria Grayson.

James Purefoy has landed a recurring gig on ABC’s Revenge playing a new love interest for Madeline Stowe’s Hamptons schemer.

Beginning in Episode 17, the soon-to-be-divorced Victoria is “going to have a big, passionate love affair” with Purefoy’s mystery man, Stowe tells The Insider.com (which first broke the casting scoop).

Purefoy joins an ever-growing list of Revenge guest stars, which include Courtney B. Vance as a high-powered defense attorney in the upcoming murder trial, and William Devane as the Grayson family patriarch.
