TV Line reported today that One Tree Hill’s Chad Michael Murray has joined the cast of Southland. This will be a big departure from his years portraying the popular Lucas Scott on the popular teen drama One Tree Hill. Season 5 of Southland begins February 13 on TNT.
The One Tree Hill vet will appear in multiple episodes of the TNT cop drama’s fifth season as Dave Mendoza, a likable cop who is a bit of a loose cannon. His off-duty behavior, however, may not always be the best influence on McKenizie’s Officer Sherman.
