Wood, whose credits also include Girls and Major Crimes, will play Kai, a charmingly unstable newcomer with the unsettling ability to seem normal as the situation demands. He can be both playful and obsessive with a mix of adolescent angst. Sounds like he'll fit right in!

Wood joins the previously cast Colin Ferguson, Marco James, Emily C. Chang, Gabrielle Walsh and Jodi Lyn O'Keefe. The actor will first appear in Episode 3 of the new season, which will premiere Thursday, Oct. 2 at 8/7c on The CW.
