Can Nick Zano help save Melrose Place?
With less than a month to go before Melrose Place returns with the first of the final episodes of its (hopefully) first season, the spotlight will be on hunky actor Nick Zano to see if he can bring in new viewers. He’s featured briefly in The CW Network’s commercials previewing the new episodes and it seems he’s going to play Drew Pragin, a new doctor working with Michael (Thomas Calabro) and Lauren (Stephanie Jacobsen). Should David (Shaun Sipos) be concerned? Maybe not. One would assume he’s been brought in to replace the booted Auggie (Colin Egglesfield) and provide the requisite shirtless eye candy, but he’s hardly a marquee name. I still say Melrose needs to do some newsworthy stunt casting to balance out the new talent. He’s been in Final Destination and 7th Heaven, but viewers will probably recognize him most from his recent stint as the young boyfriend of Courtney Cox’s character on ABC’s hit comedy Cougar Town. He was pretty good at playing a goodhearted suitor on that show, so it will be interesting to see if he does some version of this character on Melrose. Judging from the Cougar Town screen capture here, Nick’s sure gonna fit in at the Melrose pool. The complete scene with Courtney can be viewed at YouTube here.
