ABC’s ‘Revenge’ season 2 spoilers: ‘How I Met Your Mother’ guest in as…

The season premiere of “Revenge” is airing on ABC Sunday night; but before we come to that, why don’t we share some exciting casting news to look forward to a little bit later this fall?

According to a new report from TVLine, former “Battlestar Galactica” actor Michael Trucco, who may be otherwise known at the moment for his guest-starring role as Nick on “How I Met Your Mother,” is going to be appearing on “Revenge” as the brother of new character Kenny (JR Bourne). He is described as being charismatic but also tricky and potentially dangerous, so in our mind the best way that we can label this character is “someone to watch out for.”

As for how his story will impact that of Emily Thorne, that’s still to be seen, but we do feel already as though his casting is something that we can read into in the context of other shows. For example, he is probably not likely to be on “How I Met Your Mother” beyond this fall, but this does not really come as too enormous a surprise given that we already knew that Robin has to get back with Barney at some point. Meanwhile, it also does give fans of his regular gig “Fairly Legal” some more time to worry. Even though USA has already renewed the likes of “Royal Pains,” “Covert Affairs,” and “White Collar,” it is one of the series still remaining on the bubble for the time being.

What do you think about Trucco’s casting here, or are you too busy trying to read into some of the major implications of it? Be sure to share some more of your thoughts below, and you can watch the first seven minutes of the premiere a little bit early here.
