Rick Fox has joined the cast of Melrose Place. The former L.A. Lakers star-turned-actor will visit one of television’s most famous destinations when he takes on a recurring role on the new CW series — a modern day spin on the popular 1990s primetime soap.


Fox will play the owner of a restaurant where several aspiring actors on the show work.

Fox’s acting credits include appearances on One Tree Hill, The Game, and alongside ex-wife Vanessa Williams on ABC’s Ugly Betty.
