Revenge Exclusive: Meet Nolan's Mystery Man!

E.J. Bonilla RevengeThat noise you hear is the sound of a fresh skeleton rattling in Nolan’s closet.

Revenge has tapped Guiding Light alum E.J. Bonilla to play a man from Nolan’s (Gabriel Mann) past, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The exact nature of the pair’s connection is unclear, but given the tech genius’ malleable sexuality it’s possible the mystery man is an ex-boyfriend. If so, that would add an interesting wrinkle to his current flirtation with his NolCorp colleague Padma (Dilshad Vadsaria).

In addition to his stint as Rafe on GL, Bonilla — whose Revenge character could potentially recur — previously guest starred on The Big C and Blue Bloods.

    Funny. He’s playing a gay (or bi?) character on this show, and on GL he was the son of a lesbian character.

  2. Yes! More Nolan all the time!

    This is going to be a lot of fun! Can’t wait. Revenge is just such great television..and addictive.

  4. Kalee says:

    Not sure who looks older: the 24-year old Bonilla or the 40-year old (!!) Mann.

    Either way, I hope their characters make beautiful babies together.

    • tvfan says:

      I agree, I didn’t know Mann was 40, he looks much younger. I was hoping for a good looking boyfriend, this guy is just okay. Last year’s Tyler was not good looking.

  5. Love Nolan, but still suspicious of Padma. Nolan always seems so awkward socially so can’t wait to see this old relationship dynamic.

  6. Mike Henigan says:

    Yeah as much as Padma seems innocent, something in the back of my mind puts off warning signs…

  7. Shaun says:

    Is that the guy from Jersey Shore?XD

  8. Katie says:

    I’m loving Nolan’s new look this year.

  9. AlliW3 says:

    I wonder how Padma is going to respond to this. It’ll be interesting to see how a Bisexual love triangle works on tv. He seems suspicious already

  10. A says:

    Gabriel Mann is 40?? WHAT?!?!

  11. Tyluv3 says:

    Personally i can’t wait to see how this plays out. Nolan needs his own storyline (whether romantic or dealing with NolCorp) and It would be nice for him to have a life outside of Emily’s machinations.

  12. Jake says:

    Nolan is just not believable as a CEO of a major company. The guy is never in the office and always playing Shaggy to Emily’s Velma. Also, since NolCorp (really? What young techie is going to name his company like that in the age of Google, FaceBook or Instagram?) is a public company, it would have to have a CFO! Padma could never be appointed CFO. The board of directors would never allow it!

    As for flirtation between Nolan and Padma, it’s non-existent! Why didn’t Revenge hire an older, sexier actress for the role? There is no chemistry between Padma and Nolan. None.

    I find this season to be a let down.


    Emily’s mentor went from suave and lethal Japanese billionaire to a sensei with a shaved head. Why? This makes no sense.

  13. Heathers says:

    Just what we needed- another gay story line. And Kaylee, just how is it that those two would make beautiful babies together? Just wondering, seeing as they are TWO MEN, not a man and a woman!

    • Mara says:

      Yeah, cause there’s so many gay storylines on TV. We’re practically drowning in them. What, with the 1% of gay characters now.

  14. mcwmomma says:

    YUM to both! Of course, Nolan is my fave, but I’d take the other in a pinch!
