We all remember him as Sandy in The OC, and now Peter Gallagher is taking on another big role.

The actor has been cast to star in the TV remake of Cruel Intentions and he will play the father of Ryan Phillippe's late character.

If you want to know NOTHING about the remake, stop reading now – but if not, go ahead. Peter is set to play Edward Valmont, a sexy, powerful and ruthless billionaire who owns a string of hotels.

He's into some sketchy business – some legal, and some not so much – but when he finds out he has a grandson, he's determined to show him what impossible wealth can do.

Since Sandy was such a nice guy, it'll be hard to see Peter playing a 'baddie'. But one thing's for sure, this remake is looking to be very, very good.
