Josh Peck and Kelly Jenrette
Though Grandfathered got the axe after season 1, FOX seems to be taking care of its alums. John Stamos already landed a major role on Scream Queens, and now his co-stars Josh Peck and Kelly Jenrette have signed on to the network’s newest drama. Peck will be playing a guest-starring role in an episode slated for October, TVLine says. He will play Ross O’Malley, a “neo-geeky” analyst who works for Oscar’s team. Ross will be mistakenly called upon to handle a major crisis. Jenrette has picked up a recurring role in the series as Oscar’s (Mark Consuelos) loyal assistant, Rhonda.
Christian Ochoa and Parker Croft
Christian Ochoa will be playing the recurring role of Livan Duarte, a Cuban superstar catcher who recently defected from his home country. He is a free agent whom Oscar is determined to bring to his team in San Diego.
Meanwhile, Parker Croft (who played the Lost Boy Felix on Once Upon a Time) has picked up the role of Jordan, a former high school teammate of main character Ginny’s. He will be first introduced in Josh Peck’s episode.
