'Life Unexpected' snags former 'Melrose Place' star

sipos.jpgThe first season of the CW's "Life Unexpected" didn't focus too much on the school life of the newly un-orphaned Lux Cassidy ( Brittany Robertson), but all that could change now that she has something more fun to look at than homework.

Fancast reports that the series has tapped "Melrose Place" star Shaun Sipos for the recurring role of Eric, a new teacher at Lux's Westmonte High School. No official word yet from the network, but we'll keep you posted.

Sipos most recently played David Breck, the jewel thief with the heart of gold and the strongest link between "Melrose 2.0" and its predecessor (he was Michael Mancini's estranged son after all). He also fathered his own half-brother (we think), which is one of the many reasons he was available for this new gig.

No, there's no details on if interaction between Eric and Lux will indeed be cause for scandal, but it does make you wonder. Do you want to see Lux pull a Pacey Witter? Opinions welcome in the comments.
