Hephner, who many may remember from “The O.C.” as Sandy Cohen’s colleague whose friendship with Marissa Cooper bordered on inappropriate, will play Red Raymond.
Red is a Lancer University alumni who returns to his alma mater to give the football team a much-needed boost. He won’t only cause a stir on the field, though.
As Zap2it first reported, Red will jump into a love triangle with D.B Woodside‘s Dr. Derrick Altman, the cheerleaders’ physician, and his girlfriend, cheerleading coach Vanessa (Sharon Leal). Derrick and Vanessa have been in a stable relationship for a while, but her history with Red may cause a crack in the foundation.
In the “Hellcats” pilot, the role was played by Ben Browder (“Stargate SG-1”), but when Browder dropped out the role was re-tooled significantly.
