New ‘Roswell’ cast member

‘Roswell’ is getting a new cast member.

The teen drama/sci-fi show, which moves from The WB to UPN this season, will welcome Adam Rodriguez (“Brooklyn South”) to its third season, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Adam will make his first appearance on the season premiere as a lawyer who works for Isabel (Katherine Heigl) and Max Evans’ (Jason Behr) father in Roswell.

Adam’s character will finally provide a love interest for Isabel.

“Our plans are to have their relationship accelerate very fast and very far,” says Jason Katims, the show’s executive producer.

The actor’s previous credits include a stint on Showtime’s series “Resurrection Blvd.”, Aaron Spelling’s ill-fated drama “All Souls”, and appearances on “Felicity” and “Ryan Caufield: Year One”.

Adam won’t be the only new addition to “Roswell”. The show has also strengthened its writing team by adding Melinda Metz, writer of the “Roswell High” books, and Laura Burns, who edits to books, to the show’s writing staff.

“Roswell’s” season-opener will air on Oct. 9 on the UPN network.
