ABC's Brothers and Sisters has begun casting the role of Todd McAllister, Senator McAllister's (Rob Lowe) younger gay brother who will be Kevin Walker's (Matthew Rhys) significant romantic interest in the upcoming episodes.
The script describes Todd as a baby-faced man in his late 30s, charmingly rumpled and wry.
Kevin's sister Kitty (Calista Flockhart) who has already learned about Todd in an earlier episode, meets him at the Senator's office and tries to set him up with her brother Kevin.
Todd will be introduced in episode #19 and Kevin's current boyfriend Chad (Jason Lewis) is supposed to make his final appearance on the show in episode #18. Both episodes are supposed to air in April.
