Nick At Nite Casts Big Time Rush’s James Maslow As Scott Baio’s ‘Son’

The Nickelodeon star will appear on Scott’s new sitcom ‘See Dad Run,’ HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively.

James Maslow is putting down his microphone and flexing his acting muscles — at least for one day. The Big Time Rush singer will guest star on an upcoming episode of Scott Baio‘s new Nick at Nite sitcom See Dad Run, premiering Oct. 14, and BTR fans might be surprised by James’ not-so-sweet new character.

So how does James, 22, enter the equation?

Scott’s character David, a former sitcom star, stages a reunion with his on-screen son Ricky (James) — but he quickly learns that Ricky isn’t the happy-go-lucky kid he remembers.

“[Ricky] kind of let fame go to his head,” James tells HollywoodLife.com. “He became a teen heartthrob after the TV show that he and Scott’s character were on before, and he’s a little bit cocky now. It’s a funny spin, and I’m really looking forward to doing it.”

James is currently on tour with Big Time Rush; the group is wrapping up performances in North America, and heading to Mexico/South America beginning Sept. 24. The fourth season of their Nickelodeon series, Big Time Rush, begins production in early 2013.

I just discovered that on Zap2it.com it shows that the episode of ‘See Dad Run’ with James Maslow will be on 11/4/2012. I know 100% for sure that the name of the episode James is in is called “See Dad Get Wah-Wah’d”. So the info on IMDb regarding the order in which episodes of ‘See Dad Run’ air may be wrong.

There are a lot of Big Time Rush fans here and on especially on twitter who are misinterpreting what the article said. The article said that James Maslow “will guest star on an upcoming episode”. It did NOT say he will be in the premiere episode on Oct. 14th. The episode of ‘See Dad Run’ with James Maslow is episode #10 and it is titled “See Dad Get Wah-Wah’d” and it will air in December, 2012. Check IMDb for the exact date.
