Brace yourself, One Tree Hill fans: Sophia Bush has been cast in a pilot.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sophia will play Haley, a Harvard grad who returns to Texas to meet up with an old flame in ABC comedy Southern Discomfort. Don Johnson and Mary Steenburgen are set to play her parents.
The pilot is in second position to Sophia's commitment to One Tree Hill, meaning if The CW picks up the series for an 8th season (fingers crossed!) -- she's in. While that's obviously the best-case scenario as far as we're concerned, we're just happy that the lady we know so well as Brooke Davis has a shot at being on our TVs next year regardless.
Do you think Sophia Bush would be good in a comedy?
