Move over Dante, there’s a new detective in town.

Ryan Paevey, actor and model, will join the cast of “General Hospital” this month. His debut is scheduled for Monday December 30 as a Port Charles police detective named Nathan West. The actor took to his Twitter account eager to share his enthusiasm of the news after Head Writer Ron Carlivati welcomed him.

There is no word yet on the direction of his storyline but West will be working at the PCPD which might play heavily in the mob drama. Paevey’s previous credits include the short, “The Girl With The Gloves.” He can also be seen in Christina Aguilera’s music video titled “Your Body.”
