The VH1 show gets yet another famous by association cast member as Emma Roberts’ dad and Julia’s bro Eric joins the cast!

It looks like the cast of Celebrity Rehab is set now with reports Eric Roberts, brother to actress Julia Roberts and dad to up and coming starlet Emma Roberts, has checked in. Radar Online reports, “The 54-year-old star of such films as The Dark Knight and Fight Club, has moved into the Pasadena Recovery Center and is bunking with former Mallrats star Jeremy London.” Why do I have the feeling he and Rachel Uchitel will become very close friends?

Jeremy said of his new rehab pal, “Eric Roberts is my roommate and is simply amazing. He’s an incredible person.” He also said the cast of the show was “unbelievably cool,” making it near impossible to believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

Eric and his sister were estranged for years following Eric’s drug usage and Julia’s decision to support his ex-girlfriend and not her brother over the custody of Emma. She is likely thrilled to begin her press tour for Eat, Pray, Love and discuss her brother’s new television show with various journalists.
