Kevin (played by Matthew Rhys) and Scotty's ( Luke Macfarlane) story lines in "Brothers & Sisters" has a lot of fans wondering what's next for them in Season 5. 

Last season, we saw them both go through career shakeups. Yet, one of their bigger storylines involved the hardship of building their family using a surrogate mother.

In next season's one year time jump, executive producer David Marshall Grant, tells us exclusively that the surrogate pregnancy doesn't work out.

"After a year or so, [Kevin and Scotty] are in a place of certain disappointment about that," Grant tells Zap2it. "I think it has taken a lot out of Kevin and I think they put a lot into the surrogate."

Enter young actor, Bobby Soto, who has been cast as Mateo, a troubled teenager who Kevin meets at his law practice (yep, in the one year time jump, Kevin has gone back to practicing law).

"I think that there is the possibility that this kid who has come from a very troubled home," Grant tells us. "And may end up in foster care is maybe somebody that Kevin and Scotty might be able to help along the line, which would be something that could be in place of any more attempts to get a baby."

Soto has appeared in episodes of "Cold Case," "The Closer," and he will appear in an upcoming episode of "Lie To Me." We'll meet his character in the Season 5 premiere of "Brothers and Sisters" titled "Homecoming" airing Sunday, September 26 on ABC.

Don't you think adopting an older child is a good alternative for Kevin and Scotty?
