Geoff Stults has signed on for a recurring role on Fox's new comedy Ben and Kate as part of his new talent deal with 20th Century TV, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ben and Kate, premiering on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 8:30/7:30c, follows a single mom Kate (Dakota Johnson) who gets some unlikely help in raising her young daughter from her unpredictable brother Ben (Nat Faxon). Stults, 34, will play a fellow single parent and love interest for Kate beginning in the Oct. 30 Halloween episode.

Stults is known for his roles on 7th Heaven, October Road and Happy Town. He most recently starred in last season's Bones spin-off, The Finder, opposite the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
