Which 'Buffy' Star Will Be Bringing The Snark (But No Stake) To 'Faking It'?

And old, familiar face is about to teach Liam a thing or two.

Liam Booker may be Hester High School's artistic wunderkind, but he's about to meet his match...straight from Sunnydale!

Nicholas Brendon, who played the loyal, quippy Xander Harris on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," is slated to join "Faking It" for the show's Season 2 finale, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And his character will push Liam to the limits.

Brendon will play Jackson Lee, a Hester High graduate and professional artist in search of a student who's worthy of a fellowship. Naturally, Liam will be a contender, but not before Jackson puts him through the wringer and forces him to think differently about his craft.

Jackson will become the golden child's unlikely mentor, but will he approve of Liam's most recent piece -- a heart that serves as a pincushion for sharp spears? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
