The CW’s ‘Hellcats’ doesn’t debut until September 8, but already the new series is adding faces that should make its titular cheerleaders do a double take, if not a double back with a layout.

Jeff Hephner, who last played a cool con on The CW’s ‘Easy Money,’ has been cast in the recurring role of football coach Red Raymond, Fancast has learned exclusively.

Red is a celebrated Lancer University alumni who has returned home to give the football program a shot in the arm.

What’s more, the handsome rogue will give Hellcats cheer coach Vanessa (played by Sharon Leal) a jolt upon his arrival, seeing as they share a mysterious past. And mind you, Vanessa currently has something cooking with Hellcats trainer Derrick (played by ’24′s D.B. Woodside).
