After announcing that producers had found their werewolf Alcide in One Tree Hill's Joe Manganiello and that Emmy-winner Alfre Woodard will play the mother of Lafayette, played by Nelsan Ellis, in the upcoming third season of HBO's supernatural hit, Southland star Kevin Alejandro is joining the cast as well, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Alejandro -- who you might also recognize from Ugly Betty or Weeds -- will play Jesus, an orderly taking care of Lafayette's mother Ruby Jean Reynolds, who is in a care facility.
Appearing in almost every episode of the third season, according to the report, Jesus and Lafayette will become romantically involved. Makes you wonder what Jesus's secret will be -- everyone in Bon Temps seems to have one!
Tell us: Are you glad Lafayette is getting a love interest? Is Alejandro a good choice?JPI; Getty
