Chris Wood Cast in ABC's 'thirtysomething(else)' Pilot as Leo Steadman

Chris Wood is leaving his supernatural past and moving onto ABC’s thirtysomething(else).

Deadline reports that the 31-year-old actor, and husband of Melissa Benoist, is the first new actor joining the pilot.

thirtysomething(else) will follow an ensemble of new faces playing the grown-up children of the original cast, the new generation of thirtysomethings.

Chris will play Leo Steadman, Hope and Michael’s son and Janey’s brother. Good-looking and charming (not unlike his father), Leo is so intent on becoming a “big deal” like his father that he skips steps along the way. His talent and grand ideas are tripped up by his lack of focus and follow-through.

Original cast members of thirtysomething Ken Olin, Mel Harris, Timothy Busfield and Patty Wettig will also star in the series in supporting roles.

Just recently, Chris celebrated the 100th episode of SuperGirl with Melissa.
