Joe Jonas’ stint on Brothers & Sisters has been cut short. Very short. As in, it’s not happening.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that plans for the singer to guest star as a young version of Balthazar Getty’s Tommy have fallen through. Make It or Break It‘s Cody Longo has been tapped to replace him.

What happened? A source close to the show says Jonas “had a scheduling conflict.”

Longo will play a 16-year-old Tommy in the drama’s upcoming two-hour flashback-heavy episode. As exec producer David Marshall Grant recently told me, the special ep will take viewers back to three different time periods and expose a “shocking and transformative” secret about the Walker family.
