  • He will play Steven Horn, the billionaire kingpin behind Capstone Industries, an enormously successful global fund with its hand in everything from pharmaceuticals to fashion. But his bread and butter is capitalizing on the latest military trends and innovations. His hubris and influence are equally threatening, and will put him squarely in the crosshairs of Navy SEAL James Reece (Pratt).

  • He will play Marquis Jet, a sexy playboy who grew up in a lavish lifestyle. He is too charming for his own good and wields his power with a ne'er-do-well attitude. He views life as one big joke and that sense of recklessness has a tendency to clash horribly with his no-nonsense mother Jada Jet (Robin Givens). When he meets Ryan (Javicia Leslie), he sees in her a like-minded, young go-getter who like him is just waiting for the right opportunity to make his mark on Gotham.

  • Kaufman will play Steven. Handsome, a little vain and a high achiever, he is Belly's (Tung) snarky older brother who is becoming his own man.
  • Mills will play Shayla, a city girl from a wealthy family. She is Belly's fellow debutante. She is confident, cool and loves fashion.
  • Narciso will play Cleveland a commercially successful yet scruffy novelist spending the summer working on a new book. The kind of Brooklynite who bakes his own sourdough bread.
  • Madison will recur as Nicole, a pretty girl in a Red Sox cap and cut-offs who has eyes on the cute boys in town.
  • Iacono will recur as Cam, a local boy with a skater look and a sweet personality. Straight-edged, cute and book smart, even his awkward side is endearing.
  • Spencer will recur as Spencer, a queen bee who is a bit shallow and "boy crazy." Super confident, pretty and knows it, she is terrifying to her enemies but fiercely loyal to her oldest friend, Belly.
  • Scott will recur as Adam Fisher, Susannah's (Rachel Blanchard) husband, a competitive, charismatic and workaholic finance guy who thinks that money solves everything.
