90210 is about to bring on its own Mr. Big: EW has learned exclusively that Chris McKenna has signed on for multiple episodes to play Patrick, a rich, powerful and very charming businessman who falls for Annie (Shenae Grimes).

But she may not want to pursue this relationship: Patrick continues to date other women in other cities. He doesn’t do it to be mean; he’s just too darn busy to be a one-woman man. The producers describes him as a young Mr. Big — a smooth mover who gets what he wants.

McKenna has made numerous TV appearances on dramas like Harry’s Law, Rizzoli & Isles and NCIS: Los Angeles. He also played Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live.

90210 returns to the CW on Sept. 13.
