ryan mcpartlin hart of dixie 'Hart of Dixie' Season 3 casts 'Awesome' 'Chuck' alum Ryan McPartlin

Here’s some “awesome” “Hart of Dixie” casting scoop to tide you over until the fall TV season starts: the CW southern charmer just cast “Chuck” alum Ryan McPartlin for an upcoming Season 3 episode.

The hottie — best known for playing Devon “Captain Awesome” Woodcomb on NBC’s spy comedy — will “charm the women of Bluebell,” TV Guide reports. 

McPartlin will play the (obviously) very handsome Carter Covington, a chivalrous and extremely charming Southern gentleman who is one of the most eligible bachelors in the South … a.k.a. every Southern Belle’s dream husband. No word yet on which “Hart of Dixie” lady will fall for him first, but we’re guessing it won’t be long until every “Hart of Dixie” lady is clamoring for him.

This upcoming CW stint will reunite McPartlin with two former co-workers: “Hart of Dixie” star Rachel Bilson who guest-starred on “Chuck,” as well as EP Josh Schwartz who also executive produced “Chuck.”

“Hart of Dixie” Season 3 premieres on Monday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
