Early life[edit]

He signed on to play a businessman being shown houses by Cougar Town's resident real estate agent, Jules, played by Courteney Cox, reuniting with her 9 years after Scream 3. His character and Jules began a dating relationship, but it ended quickly as his character wanted a more serious relationship than on-the-rebound Jules.[2]
