Nick Zano: Moving in to Melrose Place?

by at . Comments

As Melrose Place bids farewell to one hunk (sorry, Colin Egglesfield), a rumor is spreading that it may have found its next one.

Nick Zano, who just complete filming as Courteney Cox's boy toy on Cougar Town, is in negotiations to join The CW reboot in a recurring role.

According to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, Zano would portray a doctor who works with Lauren and Michael at Wilshire Memorial.

In an interview last week, executive producer Todd Slavkin described the character as “irreverent and funny.. He will move into the [apartment] building. He doesn’t take life very seriously. Medicine can be very fun as well as serious to him, and he ends up lightening up Lauren.”
