Brant DaughertyEXCLUSIVE: The cast of Lifetime‘s veteran drama Army Wives continues to staff up for the upcoming seventh season. Brant Daugherty has landed a major recurring role. He will play 2nd Lt. Patrick Clark, son of Jackie (Kelli Williams) and Kevin (Robert John Burke). An intelligent, capable infantry officer freshly minted from West Point, Patrick is eager to prove himself in combat.  I hear the role, eyed as a potential love interest for Gloria (Alyssa Diaz), may become a regular next season. Daugherty, repped by AKA Talent and Sweeney Entertainment, has a major recurring role on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars as Lucy Hale’s former love interest and recently completed the male co-lead in the comedy spoof The Starving Games. He is also a recurring on Days Of Our Lives.

Veteran Army Wives is getting a revamp heading into Season 7, which premieres on March 10. The series, about the struggles, dreams and friendships of a diverse group of women – and one man – living with their spouses and families on an active Army post, is adding three actresses as new regulars — Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto  and Elle McLemore — as original cast member member Kim Delaney is departing and Sally Pressman and Sterling K. Brown are scaling back from series regulars to recurring.
