Robert Buckley Replacing Chad Michael Murray on One Tree Hill

Fans were outraged when Chad Michael Murray announced he wouldn’t be returning to One Tree Hill next season. But luckily, the CW has ordered up another hottie to take his place.

Robert Buckley, whom you may know from the cancelled Lipstick Jungle, has officially joined the cast. It’s perfect timing, since his show just got the boot! Robert should thank Chad for leaving when he did!

In the upcoming seventh season of this show, Buckley will play Clayton, a young sports agent who represents Nathan Scott (played by James Lafferty). Throughout the season, Clayton will become a close friend, business partner and advisor to him.

Believe it or not, Brian Austin Green was initially in talks for the role early on, but a deal couldn’t be reached. Seems surprising, since Green should realistically be taking any role he can get at this point.

Robert doesn’t have the best track record on shows. Not only did Lipstick Jungle get cancelled, but so did Privileged, which he guest-starred on as well. Hopefully he won’t curse One Tree Hill too!
