Bentley’s part — per our sister site Deadline — is Evan Foster, a good-looking but arrogant guy who won’t shut up when it comes to his theories about human sexuality.

Since his breakout role in 1999’s American Beauty, Bentley has worked primarily in film. His only other TV work was the 2010 HBO pilot Tilda, which was not ordered to series. Most recently, he appeared as gamemaker Seneca Crane in The Hunger Games movie.
