USA Network’s Necessary Roughness has added a wingman for John Stamos.

Once Upon a Time alum David Anders has booked major arc on the third season of the cable network’s drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Anders, whose credits also include The Vampire Diaries, 24, Heroes and Alias, will play Troy Cutler, the second-in-command to Stamos’ Connor at V3, the world’s top sports and talent agency. Having sacrificed his personal life for his career, Troy is most satisfied when getting his hands dirty for the company — something that doesn’t sit well with Callie Thorne‘s Dani.
