Jason Dohring

Jason Dohring is heading into the world of Tomorrow.

The Veronica Mars alum has landed a guest-starring gig on The CW's new drama The Tomorrow People, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Based on the U.K. series of the same name, it's the story of several young people — played by Peyton List, Robbie Amell, Luke Mitchell and Aaron Yoo, among them — from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers like teleportation and telepathy. They work together to defeat the forces of evil, otherwise known as a group called Ultra, who hunts down people with these special abilities.
