Morris will play Ryan, the teacher who replaces Jess in the classroom now that she’s vice principal of her school. Ryan is “distractingly handsome” and has a confidence and swagger that irks Jess… until — per EW.com, which first reported the casting — she starts to fall for him.
Morris will debut in an episode airing in October.

Julian Morris (Pretty Little Liars) is set as a series regular in Amazon Studios‘ pilot Hand Of God, written by Ben Watkins, directed by Marc Forster and starring Ron Perlman. It centers on the powerful Judge Harris Pernell (Perlman), a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side who has a religious awakening and starts having visions and hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son that could be God speaking to him. Morris, repped by Gersh, Brillstein and Hamilton-Hodell, will play Paul Dobson, an actor-turned-preacher whose affinity for quick money and shortcuts have gotten him in trouble in the past.
