by at . Comments

A Twilight Saga star has signed on for Beauty and the Beast. No, not that one.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Edi Gathegi will join The CW drama as Kyle, an agent for a top-secret organization who "can easily assess anyone’s weaknesses and happily exploit them," based on network casting notes.

Gathegi will debut later on in Beauty and the Beast Season 1, which returns on January 24.

I love the show too! it makes more sense to have Vincent be a real man instead of a Lion Man. They can eventially "hook -up" with no weird sexual taboos attached. LOVE this show!

I LOVE this show! I have B&Beast set up auto tape and don't delete them. I loved the original series years ago and am enjoying this "take off" of it. These actors are great! Hope they are on TV for a long long time.
