My Boys star Reid Scott has landed a recurring role on Showtime's The Big C, Deadline reports.
The 32-year-old actor will play Dr. Todd, the oncologist of Laura Linney's character, Cathy. Todd's intelligent and well-trained but lacks experience.
The Big C follows Cathy, a schoolteacher and suburban mother who tries to rebuild her life after her cancer diagnosis.
Since Scott's role is recurring, it won't conflict with his contract with TBS, which has still not decided whether to renew My Boys for a fifth season (Season 4 premieres July 25). Scott's My Boys co-stars Jordana Spiro and Kyle Howard recently exited their new NBC series - Love Bites and Perfect Couples, respectively - because they were still under contract with the cable network.
An e-mail to Showtime was not immediately returned.
The Big C premieres Aug. 16 at 10:30/9:30c.
