EXCLUSIVE! Jesse McCartney is a Geeky Guest Star on 'Young and Hungry'-Watch Now!
By Leanne Aguilera
Things are getting hot in the Young and Hungry kitchen!
Swoon-worthy singer, Jesse McCartney is ditching his mic, and donning some glasses for a geeky new role in tonight's all-new episode of the hit ABC Family comedy. The "Beautiful Soul" singer is stepping back into his acting roots (Who remembers/loved him on The WB's Summerland?!) to play Gabi's (Emily Osment) new love interest.
In "Young & Punchy," Josh (Jonathan Sadowski) wants to hire computer genius Cooper Finley (McCartney), but an awkward incident with Gabi (Osment) leads Josh to punching Cooper rather than hiring him. Yikes!
Now Gabi is determined to make things right between them, leading to a different kind of spark between her and Cooper. We told you things were getting hot in here!
ETonline has snagged you an exclusive sneak peek of Gabi trying to woo over her new friend with some awesomely amazing cookies and her effortless charm. Take a look at our first look video above to bask in Jesse's geeky goodness for yourself!
Fun-Fact: This is not the first time McCartney and Osment have shared the small screen together. The pop singer played himself—aka a teen heartthrob—in the second season of Hannah Montana in 2007.
When he's not looking totally adorable in those glasses, McCartney is touring the U.S. to promote his brand new album, In Technicolor (available now on iTunes).
Young and Hungry airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
