'Privileged' Casting Coup: Rose Falls for a Franco!

No, not James Franco – the next best thing: his younger sib!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Dave Franco, the up-and-coming brother of movie star James, is joining Privileged for a multi-episode arc. He’ll play a love interest for Rose (Lucy Hale).

Franco’s previous credits include Fox’s short-lived comedy debacle Do Not Disturb and ABC Family’s awesome Greek.

His Privileged arc kicks off in early ‘09.

In related news, I’m still waiting on that back-nine pickup. Yes, Dawn Ostroff, I’m talking to you. (Additional reporting by Oriana Schwindt)
