The cast for the second season of Celebrity Big Brother has been announced, and daytime fans will likely recognize one of the stars who has signed on: Jonathan Bennett, who played All My Children's J.R. Chandler for a short time in the early 2000s.
The actor, who's widely known for his appearance in the teen film Mean Girls, has joined a long list of celebrities for the reality series, including Tamar Braxton, Tom Green, Ryan Lochte, Joey Lawrence, and Lindsay's Lohan's mother, Dina Lohan.
Hosted by former The Talk co-host Julie Chen, Celebrity Big Brother follows a group of stars living under one roof. Each week, houseguests will be voted out of the house, and the last one left will win $250,000.
"I can't believe I'm packing for the Celebrity Big Brother house!" Bennett posted to Instagram. "If you see this picture that means I am officially locked away going on the next adventure in my life and becoming a house guest for season two of Celebrity Big Brother on CBS. Catch me Jan 21st and see how it all goes down."
