We’ve seen Robbie Jones as a basketball star on “One Tree Hill” and a cheerleader on “Hellcats.” Now, sources confirm to Zap2it exclusively that he’s booked an arc on USA’s “Necessary Roughness” — and, just to keep up with the athletic theme he’s got going on, he’ll be playing a wide receiver.
When the New York Hawks acquire Joe “Toes” Kittredge (Jones), he quickly becomes the new face of the team — much to TK’s (Mehcad Brooks) dismay. Let’s just say he’s not particularly thrilled about sharing the spotlight with “Toes.”
Expect to see Jones in three episodes of “Necessary Roughness.” The show is currently airing the first part of Season 2 on USA on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. through August 29. Jones’ arc will air when Season 2 returns with more episodes in the winter of 2013. Jones isn’t the first “Hellcats” star to need some counseling from Dani (Callie Thorne) — his romantic rival Matt Barr also appeared in a Season 1 episode.
