Harry Hamlin has sailed into a role on CBS' upcoming Harper's Island, a horror drama series expected to air midseason. The series will focus on a group of friends who are terrorized on an island off the Seattle coast, where they've met for a destination wedding. Hamlin will play the gregarious, womanizing uncle of the groom ( Ugly Betty's Christopher Gorham), says the Reporter. (The role was played by Bill Pullman in the "drama presentation" originally shown at TCA, but you always had a feeling that was done as a favor to someone.) In addition to showing off his footwork on a season of Dancing with the Stars, Hamlin - an original L.A. Lawyer - had a run on Veronica Mars. - Anna Dimond Related: " Supernatural Beauty Gets Island Wedding " Ugly Betty's Henry Moves to Harper's Island
