Scoop: NBC's Playboy Club Casts Eddie Cibrian's 'Brother'

In addition to ample T&A, NBC’s The Playboy Club will also offer up a bit of “Cain and Abel,” by giving Nick Dalton, the semi-reformed mob mouthpiece played by Eddie Cibrian, an ersatz brother.

Series executive producer Chad Hodge tells TVLine that Troy Garity (Barbershop) has landed the recurring role of John Bianchi, the “connected” son of Bruno Bianchi, a Chicago crime kingpin who meets an unexpected and grisly fate in the series premiere (airing Monday, Sept. 19).

First appearing in the new drama’s second episode, John attempts to leverage Nick’s sense of “family” loyalty to ascertain the whereabouts of “their” MIA father.

In addition to his role of Isaac, the lone Caucasian haircutter in the two Barbershop movies, Garity’s credits include the TV-movie Soldier’s Girl (for which he netted a Golden Globe nomination) and guest spots on House and Hawaii Five-0 (where this past February he played an FBI agent).
