Robert Buckley Previews One Tree Hill Character, Season

at . Comments

You can hear the shrieks around the country: Not only has Robert Buckley joined the cast of One Tree Hill, but the former Lipstick Jungle hunk will be shirtless for many scenes on tonight's season seven premiere.

In a new interview with TV Guide, the actor - who is tasked with helping to replace series stalwarts Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton this year - spoke about his character, Clay.

Here are a couple excerpts from the chat, the first of which focuses on Buckley's sports agent; the second on his topless body.

On Clay: Season 7 starts off with us jumping a year ahead from where we left off in Season 6 [and], since then, Nathan has joined the NBA and has been successful. Clay is his agent and they have also become good friends. So you've got these good buddies, but they also have a business relationship. Clay is responsible for Nathan and his family's well-being at the end of the day, so it makes things complicated.

Will he often be shirtless this season? Not as much as I was in the first episode. I think we managed to squeeze a couple of shirtless scenes in there, but there's a respectable amount of shirtless-ness, not too much overkill.

Speaking of nudity, we hear there will be a lot this season on One Tree Hill. The video posted after this jump provides quality, sexy proof of the topless scenes to come.

I can't believe Lucas and Peyton are gone. they were my two favorite people. I can't imagine One Tree Hill being anything without the two of them. This sucks!

One Tree Hill Quotes

Most of our lives are a series of images, they pass us by like towns on a highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.
