As we say goodbye to some of our favorites (sob, Declan, sob), we prepare for a new season of Revenge premiering Sunday, Sept. 29. And with it comes a whole slew of newbies set to stir up major drama in the Hamptons.

E! News reports that Girls actor James LeGros is joining the cast as a character named Father Paul who “will be introduced to viewers after Emily [Thorne] seeks him out; he also has ties to the Grayson family.”

SpoilerTV also has some details on this new character. Father Paul Whitely will appear in Episode 2, “Sin,” and apparently “before becoming a priest [he] helped the Graysons against Emily’s father.”

On Girls, James played the creepy dad (Jeff Lavoyt) who hit on Jessa for much of Season 1, but he’s best known for his role on Ally McBeal as Mark Albert. He has also appeared on Grey’s Anatomy, Justified, and the miniseries Mildred Pierce.

We doubt Father Paul will make it far if he crosses paths with Emily Thorne, but are you excited for this new character? Tell us below!
