Nick Zano Speaks on New Melrose Place Character

by at . Comments

It's official: Nick Zano is moving in to Melrose Place.

The actor, most recently seen on Cougar Town, will portray a doctor at the hospital at which Lauren and Michael work. He recently spoke to Michael Ausiello about joining The CW drama. A few excerpts:

On his character: He moves into the building and works at the local hospital. He’s a person who enjoys life. He lives every day to [its fullest]... I just literally walked out of a meeting with [exec producers] Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavkin. They were very specific about how they’re going to change the direction of the show. In TV, you usually don’t get a chance to fix anything.

It’s always easier to cancel something than fix it. And The CW clearly has a passion for the show, because it’s still on the air. And all of these people are making a very concentrated effort to improve the show and I’m happy to be a part of it.

On what his character is hiding: It’s Melrose Place. Everybody has a secret. That’s all you’re getting out of me, man.

No word yet on when Zano will debut. But Colin Egglesfield departs the show in January.
