Eigeman will appear in Episode 8 as Conor, the director of a play that Michelle (Sutton Foster) and Fanny (GG alumna Kelly Bishop) attend.

Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino hasn’t been shy about using actors from her previous project on the new series. In addition to Bishop and Eigeman, Rose Abdoo (Stars Hollow’s resident mechanic Gypsy) plays Sparkles shopkeeper Sam in Bunheads and Gregg Henry (Logan’s dad Mitchum) will recur as a surfer dude who owns a local restaurant.

Eigeman most recently appeared in the pilot of HBO’s Girls as Hannah’s boss.
