"Beauty and the Beast" has cast Tom Everett Scott as a new recurring character for when the show returns with new Season 2 episodes in 2014.

Scott will play the role of Sam, an archaeologist who crosses path with Catherine and Vincent. According to EW.com, Sam has been living in isolation for several years -- possibly involuntarily. The experience has changed him, as you would expect.

Perhaps because of his past, Sam is described as a man with a short fuse "who can be charming on one hand and manic on the other."

Is he a beast? Whether Sam is or not, he definitely shares some characteristics with those who have mutated DNA.

First skyrocketing to prominence in 1996's "That Thing You Do!," Scott has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows over his career. Although most recently seen in "Southland," other TV roles have included "GCB," "Sons of Anarchy," "Law & Order" and "ER." He will first appear in episode 12 and is expected to recur after that.

"Beauty and the Beast" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on The CW.
