Wilson Bethel (The Astronaut Wives Club) has joined ABC’s new fall drama series Blood & Oil in a recurring role. Written by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne and executive produced by Tony Krantz, Blood & Oil centers on a young working-class couple (Chace Crawford, Rebecca Rittenhouse) who move to “The Bakken” in North Dakota, booming after the biggest oil discovery in American history. They’re pitted against a ruthless tycoon (Don Johnson) who forces them to bet big and put everything on the line, including their marriage. Bethel will play Finn, a charismatic but poor businessman, who owns a food truck, and partners up with Kess (Keston John) and Ada’ (Yaani King). Bethel, repped by WME, LINK and Zero Gravity, most recently played astronaut Scott Carpenter on ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club and previously was a regular on CW’s Hart Of Dixie.
Jackson Rathbone (Twilight franchise) has booked a major recurring role on MTV’s Finding Carter. He will play Jared, a charismatic guy with a good business sense. Although, his core values waiver when he falls for an underaged teen (Kathryn Prescott) and engages in shady/questionable business practices. Rathbone, repped by LINK and attorney Peter Nelson, just wrapped the lead in indie Pali Road opposite Sung Kang.
