'Twisted' adds 'Breaking Bad' vet: ABC Family drama casts Christopher Cousins

christopher-cousins-twisted-gi.jpgWhen "Twisted" premieres on ABC Family this June, it'll have one more member in its ranks who knows from, well, twisted.

Zap2It can exclusively reveal that former "Breaking Bad" vet Christopher Cousins (yep -- Mr. Ted Beneke himself) will be joining the new drama in a recurring capacity as Mayor Rollins.

Presiding over Green Grove, Mayor Rollins is described as having a mega-watt smile and exuding political charm and charisma. Appearing in the series' fifth episode, on hand for the town's annual fall festival, viewers will learn that, despite his show of support for Police Chief Kyle Masterson's ( Sam Robards, "Gossip Girl") investigation into the Crane murder (the show's central mystery), Mayor Rollins is not at all pleased with the progress being made.

"Twisted" centers on a charismatic 16-year-old Danny Desai ( Avan Jogia, "Victorious") who returns home after five years away in juvenile detention and finds himself the prime suspect when a fellow student is surprisingly found dead. The series also stars Denise Richards, Maddie Hasson ( "The Finder"), Kylie Bunbury ( "Prom"), Kimberly Quinn ( "Terriers") and newcomer Ashton Moio.

"Twisted" premieres Tuesday, June 11 at 9 p.m. on ABC Family.
