Major Crimes has booked Keegan Allen for a guest role.
The Pretty Little Liars star will appear in the season five finale as Aiden Reed, a handsome and successful young restaurateur with the means, money, and determination to separate Rusty from Gus. The news was first reported by EW.
Allen is the latest actor to land a role on the back half of the show’s fifth season. Other guest stars appearing in these next eight episodes include Camryn Manheim as Deputy Chief Winnie Davis and Leonard Roberts as Commander Leo Mason – both of whom are candidates to replace Russell Taylor as Assistant Chief. Roberts has an option to become a series regular in a potential sixth season.
The back half of season five, set to premiere next month on TNT in the United States, sees the LAPD move squad moves to fill the vacant post of Assistant Chief. Along the way, Sanchez tries once again to become a father; Flynn and Sharon move closer toward the path to matrimony; Provenza considers retirement; Rusty interns for DDA Hobbs; Sykes confronts an old foe in Mark Hickman; and Dr. Morales joins the squad for the entire investigation of a very personal mystery. UK broadcaster Universal Channel has not yet set a premiere date for the new episodes.
