LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Gilles Marini is joining ABC’s “Brothers & Sisters” next season, a network rep confirmed to Access Hollywood on Friday.
According to the rep, he’ll be guest-starring as a romantic interest for Rachel Griffiths’ character, Sarah.
The “Dancing With the Stars” hunk broke the news to OK! on Tuesday night.
The star told the mag, “I’m going to work on ABC on ‘Brothers & Sisters, ’” though he wouldn’t dish on the “secret” role.
“It’s going to be very interesting,” Gilles reportedly said. “It’s going to be a like, ‘Oh, my God.’ It’s going to be great.”
On Thursday, an ABC rep told Access that Gilles was not confirmed to do the show.
In the meantime, the sole remaining guy on “Dancing With the Stars” will compete for the reality competition’s crown next week against Shawn Johnson and Melissa Rycroft. He and partner Cheryl Burke earned perfect marks for their performances on Monday.
And Gilles told OK! he wants to win the show “badly.”
“I did the show because of my daughter, Juliana: She danced all day at 16 months old,” he said. “I want Juliana to have the real trophy in her room. It will be the best thing that ever happened.”
