Series Creator Marc Cherry said we can expect Roy to “stick around for awhile" on the show. He's just the latest to join the cast of this ever-expanding hit.

In the last two weeks alone, Jeffrey Nordling and Beau Mirchoff have been added to the drama, while Jesse Metcalfe will return for a couple episodes.
