"The Secret Circle" star Thomas Dekker is making his next TV move -- right on over to CBS's "Backstrom" pilot, from "Bones" boss Hart Hanson.

"Backstrom," based on a popular Swedish book series, is about a detective with a short temper who is often hindered by his own self-destructive behavior. Early buzz says that Backstrom (Rainn Wilson) is the Gregory House of the crime genre.

Dekker is set to guest star as Valentine, an entrepreneurial crook who uses Backstrom's apartment to store his high-end ill-gotten goods. He also serves as Backstrom's decorator... and connection to the criminal underbelly.

He's the fourth former "Secret Circle" lead to book a pilot this season, following gets for Britt Robertson, Chris Zylka, and Phoebe Tonkin. Dekker is best known for his role as John Connor in "The Sarah Connor Chronicles."

In addition to Dekker, Camryn Manheim will guest star in the pilot, as police chief Anna Holt. »
