Jesse McCartney just signed on to join the new FOX pilot, Locke & Key. The supernatural series tells the story of a woman and her three children who return to their father's hometown following his death, only to realize their home is inhabited by an evil entity.

Based on Joe Hill's comic book series, Jesse will play Ty Locke, the oldest of the Locke children who "isolates himself a bit by retreating into his music."
No word on when the pilot is set to air.
Does the show sound good? Do you like Jesse better as an actor or singer?
