Seth Cohen returns!

In a statement released this week, Showtime announced the addition of a man they call "noted actor Adam Brody" to their prime-time roster. But to millions of reformed "O.C." worshipers, Brody will always be remembered fondly and immortally as neurotic Death Cab for Cutie acolyte Seth Cohen.

And after detouring primarily into film the past handful of years, Brody is returning triumphantly to our television sets in "House of Lies." The former nerd icon (who turns 33 Saturday) will pop up as a recurring guest star in Season 2, which premieres Jan. 13.
Specifically, he'll be playing an as-yet-unnamed adult toy store owner who becomes involved with Kristen Bell's sultry management consultant, Jeannie. 

Man, first Rachel Bilson and now Bell. Not the usual succession of romantic pairings for most geeks we've ever known.

"House of Lies" Season 2 premieres Jan. 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
