It’s a small show business world! It turns out Pretty Little LiarsIan Harding (Ezra) is a former classmate of American Idol Season 12 hopeful Mathenee Treco. The two were at Carnegie Mellon University together, both graduating in 2009. Ian hared the connection yesterday, tweeting his support for Mathanee.
 
“So proud of my classmate Mathenee! Lets keep the ball rolling for him ya?” tweeted Ian. Aw! It’s nice to see a little a little showbiz love between old classmates.
 
Mathenee, a native Bahamian, has auditioned for American Idol five times. He’s already made it further than ever before, making the cut into the Top 40. The top 20 guys are all pretty talented, but maybe with Ian’s support, this could be Mathenee’s lucky year!

Now, we’re wondering if Ian has any singing chops of his own. We wouldn’t say no to a scene of Ezra serenading Aria (Lucy Hale). He’s been neglecting our Liar a bit lately with the recent discovery of his son and all. She could use a pick-me-up tune or two (and so could we).

Catch the next episode of Pretty Little Liars on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
