The producers of Fox's upcoming baseball drama Pitch have recruited UnREAL star B.J. Britt.

Britt, who plays quarterback/suitor Darius on Everlasting, the show-within-a-show on Lifetime's UnREAL, will swap his football for a baseball. He's landed a recurring role on Pitch as Will, the older brother of main character Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury). On the show, Ginny is the first woman to pitch in the major leagues. Will managed her before she went pro and remains her confidante.

Britt joins a cast that also includes Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter and Mark Consuelos.

Pitch premieres Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9/8c on Fox.
