“Magic Mike XXL” hottie Adam Rodriguez is having a pretty busy season, as he just landed a recurring role on the hip-hop drama television series “Empire,” where he will play a potential new love interest for Cookie (Taraji P. Henson). Now, The Hollywood Reporter says Rodriguez has been booked to direct an episode of “Scorpion,” and has landed a role on the CW comedy series “Jane the Virgin” as Jane’s (Gina Rodriguez) very strict writing professor, Jonathan. “In the writers room, we broke this arc with Adam in mind and we are all so thrilled to have him,” showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman told THR.

This means the actor will be joining the star-studded list of guest appearances this season, which includes Kate del Castillo, Britney Spears and Kesha, so far. The writers have yet to announce which episode will feature Adam’s debut and how long his role is set to last on the show’s second season, which premieres next October 12.

Lead star Gina Rodriguez seems to be doing ok since her recent break up with boyfriend Henri Esteve. In fact, the actress took to Twitter to express her excitement about the addition to the cast by saying: “Ok, so I'm trying to keep my cool but I can't because ‪@_Adam_Rodriguez is coming to ‪#JaneTheVirgin in an epic role.”
