adam harrington 'The Secret Circle' casting news: A 'Queer as Folk' reunion

Well, this is awkward… in a fictional sort of way. 
Adam Harrington has joined “The Secret Circle,” Kevin Williamson’s drama pilot for The CW. “Queer as Folk” fans may remember Harrington as Connor James, an actor hired to play the comic book version of Brian Kinney in a movie. 
As “QOF” fans know, Brian was played by Gale Harold, who was recently cast as Thomas Meade, the coven leader Diana’s (Shelley Hennig) father. What’s the saying we’re looking for, something about a small world?

Zap2it has confirmed that Harrington, also known for his work on “Dexter,” has joined the project as a guest star and will be playing Adam’s (Thomas Dekker) father, Ethan Conant. Emily Holmes (“Snakes on a Plane”) has also been cast in a guest-starring role: Cassie’s (Britt Robertson) deceased mother, Amelia Blake.

“The Secret Circle” follows Cassie as she moves to New Salem and discovers she is part of a secret coven of witches and may also be the key that will unlock a centuries-old battle of good versus evil.  Thomas, Ethan and Amelia were all part of their own coven when they were teenagers and share a complicated history.
