Series creator Nahnatchka Kahn recently told us about the role, noting that whoever was cast would have to keep up with Ritter. "Chloe's going to have a potential love interest that's the first guy who is her equal that she's ever met," she said. "That's somebody we're interested in coming back for a few episodes."

We'll first meet Jonathan in the Halloween episode, in which the ladies go out on the town. "This is going to be June's [Dreama Walker] first Halloween solo because she broke up with her fiancé, so it's the first time she's out of a couples' costume," Khan says. "For her first solo Halloween, she goes as a lady Hobbit because it's emblematic of her journey of self-discovery. Every single girl wants a ring. Chloe is going as a lot of different things."

Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 returns Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
