J-14 chatted exclusively with Scott Michael Foster who plays Cappie on the ABC Family show Greek. Read on to get the scoop on the new episodes that start back on March 30 (including deets on a new pledge played by Jesse McCartney!).
J-14: Where do the new episode of Greek pick up?
Scott: We left off at the end of freshman year for Rusty, and we pick up the beginning of his sophomore year, and he's going to be a big brother to a pledge. It's the new school year for everyone. Cappie helps him deal with the fact that's he's gone from a pledge taking all the orders to being a responsible, older brother. You're also going to see things happen with Evan and Cappie -- they're going to have some things to talk about so that's exciting for us. Our characters didn't get to do much in the last season and half, so it's exciting for us to work together.
J-14: Is it safe to say Casey is what they're talking about?
Scott: There're a lot of things that they're going to talk about. I'll give you that. It's a cool, fun twist for the season.
J-14: How has Cappie changed now that he's going into his senior year?
Scott: He's confident and comfortable because he knows he's going to be there for a while. He's not going anywhere. He wants to study as much as possible. He'll try every major and he's going to try and stay in school as long as he can. He's like Van Wilder -- seriously, he has no intentions of leaving.
J-14: What is your favorite part about playing Cappie?
Scott: The character has a lot of parties -- and shooting parties is a lot of fun. I never have to deal with anything heavily dramatic unless it's a love situation. I'm always in good spirits, having fun. It's awesome to play a character that's happy.
J-14: Speaking of the love interests, is there anything we can look forward to with Cappie in these episodes?
Scott: Absolutely. I don't want to give anything away, but you're going to see him realize that he was with one girl for so long. Now he's going to try and get back in the game. He finds someone that he used to have a crush on when he was a freshman and she was a senior at Zeta Beta. He wants to go on a date with her and for some reason, he can't land it. You'll see him level through some different girl scenarios. And of course, he still loves Casey, but who knows what will happen.
J-14: What was it like have Jesse McCartney join the cast?
Scott: He is awesome. We hit it off really well. I went to go see his show at the House of Blues [in LA]. He really knows what he's doing, and it was a pleasure to have him on.
