Lawson, who also starred on the U.K.'s Neighbors will recur on the second season of the ABC comedy starring Ritter, James Van Der Beek and Dreama Walker. He'll play Jonathan, and first surface in the Halloween episode.

Producers Nahnatchka Khan and David Hemingson told THR in July that Chloe would meet her match this season -- with a twist.

"She's pulling another scam and halfway through, the guy flips the tables on her and she's taken aback," Khan said. "It's got to be somebody who can hold their own with Krysten. It's Chloe meeting her match, the 'Bastard in 407!' "
