TV loves a sibling casting coups (Zooey Deschanel on Emily Deschanel's Bones, Justine Bateman on Jason Bateman's Arrested Development, William Baldwin on Alex Baldwin's 30 Rock), but ABC Family is about to stage the most musical double act of all-time on Bunheads!
ETonline can exclusively reveal that Sutton Foster's brother Hunter has been tapped to play her character's brother, Scotty Simms, who shares a close relationship with Michelle having helped to raise each other as kids. But Scotty rarely stays in one place for long as he has a tendency to fall in and out of both love and marriage quickly.
And given Hunter's real life musical prowess (he received a Tony nomination for his work in Little Shop of Horrors), Broadway and Bunheads fans should keep their fingers crossed for at least one sibling sing and dance duet!
Hunter will begin his arc in Paradise beginning with the January 28 episode, while Bunheads returns to ABC Family on January 7 at 8 p.m.
