He plays Ian, a precocious cinephile who is unimpressed with Josh's (Feuerstein) TV career. Very smart, sophisticated, mature and outspoken, Ian is a latchkey kid who hangs out in the lobby because his single mom is always at work. In many ways, he is more grown up than Josh.
  • Kim Raver (24, Grey's Anatomy) has landed a recurring role on the drama's upcoming fifth season. She will play Dr. Bergstein, a cutting-edge surgeon.
