O.C. GETS A NEW DEAN
Eric Mabius (Eyes, The L Word) will join The O.C. this fall in the recurring role of Harbor's new dean of discipline, who immediately targets Marissa, Ryan, Seth and Summer as the troublemakers they are. This casting news comes on the heels of the addition of Jeri Ryan as a bee-stung-lipped beauty who forms a friendship with fellow recovering-alcoholic Kirsten.
