The couple that acts together stays together…
Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo, who announced their engagement in November, are set to guest star on CBS’ reboot of “Hawaii Five-O,” according to People.
A source for the mag says Vanessa will play “a woman named Susan,” who is engaged to Nick’s character, Tyler. Vanessa’s character will reportedly be working as a “deckhand” on a cruise ship that’s taken hostage by pirates, according to the mag.
Additionally, the source tells the mag that the episode featuring the couple will air in February.
As previously reported on AccessHollwood.com, Nick and Vanessa announced their engagement in early November.
“We’re excited and incredibly happy about our engagement and we look forward to a wonderful future together,” the couple said in a statement to Access at the time.
The pair began dating in 2006 (in the wake of Nick’s highly-publicized divorce from his first wife, Jessica Simpson), after Vanessa starred in the former 98 Degrees singer’s music video for “What’s Left Of Me.”
The charming couple split in June 2009, but reportedly rekindled their romance in August.
This will be the first marriage for Vanessa, 30, and the second for Nick, 36.
