Jeff Hephner to Play Football Coach on Hellcats

at . Comments

We have Hellcats casting news that fans will flip over. (Get it?!? The show is about cheerleaders? And fans might FLIP for this news?!? Nevermind.)

Jeff Hephner has landed a recurring role on the show. The actor - who has guest-starred on NCIS, Private Practice and Drop Dead Diva - will portray the football coach at the fictional college where this new CW drama is set.

According to Fancast, Hephner's character is named Red Raymond and he's a graduate of Lancer University. Look for him and Hellcats cheerleading coach Vanessa (Sharon Leal) to share a past.

Last week, we revealed that former 24 star D.B. Woodside had also nabbed a recurring role on the show.

We also published an extended promo for Hellcats, which you can view now and then decide: Will you give this show a chance?
