Ben McKenzie and Bethany Joy Lenz are almost universally beloved by fans of the hit teen shows 'The OC' and 'One Tree Hill'. Funnily enough, we'll get to see them act together when they guest star on the latest episode of 'Men At Work'. Lenz guest stars as a love interest for one of the main characters, and McKenzie stars as her ex-husband.
McKenzie has just received some bad news, as it was just announced that TNT has decided to cancel his show 'Southland'. He headlined that show since 2009, so it will be interesting to see what's ahead for his career.
McKenzie already has another pilot lined up with CBS called 'Advocates', starring opposite Mandy Moore. There's no word yet on whether it's been picked up, but even if it doesn't get a series order, McKenzie will no doubt find plenty of opportunities by the time pilot season rolls around next year.
Lenz, on the other hand, just wrapped a nine year stint on 'One Tree Hill', but she's already managed to land this guest spot on 'Men At Work' as well as a recurring stint on the final season of 'Dexter'. There haven't been a lot of details released about her role, apart from the fact that she will be playing a character named Cassie who is neighbors with Dexter. She hasn't shot any pilots this year, but she has previously mentioned that she wants to focus on films, music, and theater, and that she doesn't want to return to another television show as a regular just yet.
