The Game” alum Coby Bell has landed a key role opposite of Sarah Michelle Gellar in NBC’s forthcoming “Cruel Intentions” pilot.

Get the scoop on the show and Coby’s role via Deadline:

Set in present day, Cruel Intentions picks up more than 15 years after the movie left off. It follows the beautiful and cunning Kathryn Merteuil (Gellar) as she vies for control of Valmont International as well as the soul of Bash Casey (Taylor John Smith), the son of her brother, the late Sebastian Valmont (played in the movie by Ryan Phillippe), and Annette, Witherspoon’s character in the movie, played in the pilot by Kate Levering. Upon discovering his late father’s legacy in a hidden journal, Bash is introduced to a world of sex, money, power and corruption he never could have imagined.

Bell plays Kathryn Merteuil’s husband, Pascal Barrett, a dashing and smug California power lawyer, who is the attorney for billionaire Edward Valmont. Polite and concerned when he first meets young Bash Casey, Pascal quickly drops his pleasant facade with Kathryn as the two plan their strategy.

Congrats to Coby!
