Playing 'Jane the Virgin's' Ryan Devlin Promises Telenovela-Style Twists

Jane the Virgin is about to prove that its fantastic pilot was not a fluke.

In the show's second outing, Jane will be faced with the unexpected twists you've come to expect in a modern day telenovela. ETonline caught up with star Ryan Devlin who teases we can also expect some "major fireworks in the next couple episodes."

"I'd give you scoop if I knew, but they keep me in the dark episode to episode," he said. "I can tell you that not everything is as what it seems."

Last week, the CW series scored the highest Monday night ratings for the network since early 2012. The show has also made quite the splash among critics.

"I think you can just tell that there's something happening with Jane the Virgin," Ryan says of the show's early success. "The audience has responded in kind. It's great.”

Ryan has also been dedicated to ending the current world hunger crisis. He along with his former Veronica Mars co-star Kristen Bell have teamed up for a new charity called This Bar Saves Lives. According to the website, for every bar purchased, one of their non-profit partners makes a life-saving packet of food, which is then sent to where it's needed most.

"It's one of those cool things where you can impact the life of somebody by making a small choice," he said of the organization's mission. "Instead of eating this granola bar I'm going to eat This Bar Saves Lives and I know when I have it somebody in need is having a meal too. It's a really cool powerful way to just vote with the little decisions you make in the day."

Before helping launch this life-saving mission, Ryan used to host ET on MTV. Watch the video for the sound advice he gave me!

Jane the Virgin airs at 9pm on Mondays on The CW.
