In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Buckley will be joining One Tree Hill for its seventh season this fall.

The actor will play Clayton, a bold young sports agent. He handles the affairs of Nathan Scott (James Lafferty). They have become very close friends and Clayton is very happy with his life as "a wealthy, handsome single guy."

Initially, Brian Austin Green was in talks to play this role but for some reason a deal couldn't be put together.

This new season of One Tree Hill is especially interesting because Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton have left the show.
