Scoop: Greek's Jake McDorman Scores Chelsea Promotion, Melrose's Nick Zano Goes Broke

Greek‘s Jake McDorman is graduating from a guest star to a series regular on NBC’s retooled midseason comedy Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.

In other casting news, Melrose Place‘s Nick Zano is joining CBS’ freshman sitcom 2 Broke Girls in a major recurring role.

On Chelsea Handler’s semi-autobiographical Vodka, McDorman will fill the bartender void left by Jo Koy, who was one of three castmembers dropped after the project was picked up to series. McDorman probably had a leg up on the competition seeing as he guest-starred in the pilot as a lust interest for Laura Prepon’s Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Zano — whose credits also include an arc as Courteney Cox’s boyfriend on Cougar Town — joins Broke Girls as Johnny, a street artist/bartender and a romantic foil for Kat Dennings’ Max.
