"Revolution" is getting royal... well, a cast member with a royal background, to be exact.
The NBC drama just cast "Gossip Girl" alum Patrick Heusinger -- who played Season 2's Lord Marcus Beaton -- for a recurring role in the upcoming Season 2. He joins fellow newcomer Jessica Collins in the cast.
Heusinger joins "Revolution" as Adam, a handsome, cool, roguish man in his 30s with a good sense of humor and who lives life to the fullest.
No word yet on which side Heusinger's character will fight for ... or whether or not he'll be grateful the lights turned back on.
"Revolution" returns to NBC on a new night, Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 8 p.m. Et. »

Among Branco's savvy picks, he was one of the few to foresee lead-acting nominations for "The Young and the Restless" stars Michael Muhney and Michelle Stafford.

Steve Burton’s going to try hard to not wear black on his new gig.
So when he debuts on The Young and the Restless on Jan. 29, don’t go looking for that signature black T-shirt, the leather jacket, or that familiar tough guy ‘do he sported on General Hospital. He’d like you to forget that he played Jason Morgan on ABC (despite having done it for more than two decades — and winning an Emmy for it).
