The actor, who most recently appeared on Grey’s Anatomy but is best known as Rescue Me‘s Franco, will play a love interest for Debra Messing’s Julia. Fans will recall that Julia nearly ended her marriage last season by having an affair with one of Bombshell‘s stars. Although the marital relationship appeared to be intact at season’s end, Brian D’Arcy James, who plays Julia’s hubby Frank, is exiting the series.

Sunjata stars in White Collar creator Jeff Eastin’s pilot Graceland, which received a series pickup in June.

Smash returns to NBC — with new cast members Krysta Rodriguez (Gossip Girl) and Jeremy Jordan (Broadway’s Newsies) and guest star Jennifer Hudson — at midseason.
