The search is over -- Ryan has been found!
Ending months of speculation, Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello reported today that actor Luke Grimes will play the long-lost Walker sibling on ABC's Brothers and Sisters. Friday Night Lights star Scott Porter, The Class star Jason Ritter, and Everwood actor Gregory Smith had also been mentioned for the role.
Grimes' credits include Assasination of a High School President, War Eagle, Arkansas, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane and the upcoming Shit Year. Yeah -- he's not exactly a two-time Oscar winner like Sally Field.
Ryan is expected to rear his (not-so-ugly) head in the Walker's life around Thanksgiving time.
