DAYS OF OUR LIVES star Ian Buchanan will join the cast of the award-winning web sitcom OLD DOGS & NEW TRICKS for its second season as a recurring special guest star.
A familiar face to television and film audiences, Buchanan's credits include THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, GENERAL HOSPITAL, ALL MY CHILDREN and TWIN PEAKS.
Buchanan will appear in the second half of Season 2 as Christoph, a successful photographer who becomes an age-appropriate romantic alternative for one of the OLD DOGS.
“I’m excited to be joining the cast of OLD DOGS,” said Buchanan. “It will be another new adventure!”
OLD DOGS & NEW TRICKS follows four middle-aged gay best friends living in youth-obsessed West Hollywood. Leon Acord, David Pevsner, Jeffrey Patrick Olson and Curt Bonnem star as the four friends; cabaret star Amanda Abel and Ryland Shelton co-star. Doug Spearman (Noah’s Arc) is also joins the cast in Season 2; Thom Bierdz and Bruce L. Hart return from Season 1.
“Although Ian is mostly known for drama, his guest appearances on sitcoms have shown a wonderful sense of humor and timing,” says Acord. “He’ll be able to combine elements of drama and comedy in his role. I can’t wait to see what he does with his character!”
