New Primetime gig.

Former "One Life To Live" actor Brandon Routh (ex-Seth) will be appearing in the new CBS pilot "Partners." Brandon has been cast to play Louis' (Michael Urie) steady boyfriend, a former alcoholic model.

Developed by "Will & Grace" creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, the series will surround two lifelong friends and business partners - one who's straight, the other gay. There is no word yet when to expect the sitcom to air.

Brandon played Llanview's Seth Anderson from 2001 to 2002. His character came to town with Natalie (Melissa Archer) for the sole purpose of helping Natalie regain her place in the family and to scam Jessica (then played by Erin Torpey) out of hers. The actor went on to star as Clark Kent in "Superman Returns." Though he appeared in numerous Primetime shows, he's known for his most recent role as "Chuck's" bad boy Daniel Shaw.

Watch a video of Seth finally admitting to Jessica that he worked with Natalie in order to scam her.
