Get More: Casting News, Scoop

Robbie Amell is going from one poisonous, scandal-ridden enclave to another.

The actor — who most recently portrayed Charlotte’s drug-peddling ex on ABC’s Revenge — has been tapped to guest-star in an upcoming episode of Pretty Little Liars, TVLine has learned.

Amell will play Eric Khan, the older brother of Brant Daugherty’s Big Bad Noel. He makes his debut on the ABC Family suder in Episode 9, which airs Aug. 7. While the role is currently just a one-off, we’re told there is recurring potential.

Pretty Little stars Lucy Hale and Troian Bellisario first revealed the casting via Twitter, with the latter posting an artsy pic of the “brothers.”

Amell’s other recent TV credits include installments of Alcatraz and CSI: NY. He also had a starring role in Bill Lawrence’s ill-fated Fox comedy pilot Like Father.

      • Ah, well that explains it. I had noticed that Robbie’s twitter bio said he was just 7 years younger than Stephen Amell and seeing as he pointed him out and they shared the same last name, I figured they were somehow related! Thanks. :)

  • Does this increase the odds of Charlotte being dead? :( Robbie’s character doesn’t have a role really if Charlotte isn’t alive, so he had to join another show…

    • I hope Charlotte on Revenge isn’t dead. I know she isn’t a fan favorite, but given who her real father was there was a lot of story left with her and Emily.

    • Well, he didn’t really have a part on the show when she was alive. He had very few lines in a handful of episodes, with both shows owned by a branch of ABC and Robbie, as of now, doing a single episode of Pretty Little Liars then I would say this means nothing for Charlotte’s survival chances, which in my opinion is very slim that she survives.

  • I don’t want Charlotte to die, and if i had to choose between her and Victoria to live, i’d obviously choose Victoria but there is no guarantee that both die.

    Although someone is told to die, both have reasons to keep them alive.

    Charlotte is Emilys sister…

    …and Victoria is just way to AWESOME to die.
