John from Cincinnati is moving to Tree Hill.

Ex-Cincinnati star Austin Nichols is joining the cast of One Tree Hill, sources confirm to me exclusively. He’ll play an indie movie producer who expresses interest in turning Lucas’ first novel into a film. And because OTH loves its triangles, he’ll also share a past connection with Peyton!

My OTH mole describes Nichols’ gig as “heavy recurring,” which I’m pretty sure means we’re going to be seeing a lot of him.

In related news, props to me for getting through yet another OTH story without saying anything mean. Not sure what’s come over me.
