Entertainment Weekly reports that Rathbone will have the role of Jared, described as a business-savvy person whose morals may be put in jeopardy when he becomes attracted to the underage lead Carter Stevens, played by Kathryn Prescott.
MTV describes him as “A charismatic, edgy owner of a hip local bar and sparks will fly between him and his new employee Carter.”
