Will Vinny Guadagnino make the move from reality TV sensation to legitimate actor?

The Jersey Shore star, who passed on law school after the first season of the hit MTV show aired to pursue a career in entertainment, will appear in his first scripted show, MTV's coming-of-age comedy The Hard Times of RJ Berger, according to a press release from the network.

The show, about a late-blooming outcast who makes a name for himself at his high school after accidentally exposing his "anatomical gift," returns for its second season March 24 (11 p.m. ET), following the season 3 finale of Jersey Shore.

Vinny's episode of the show, which stars Paul Iacono, Amber Lancaster, Kara Taitz and Jareb Dauplaise, will air March 28 (10 p.m. ET) at its regular time.

Paris Hilton and the band Weezer will also make guest appearances on Hard Times this season.
