Austin Butler Joins 'The Carrie Diaries'

Austin Butler is headed back to the CW.

The 20-year-old actor has been cast as Sebastian Kidd in The Carrie Diaries, Deadline reports.

He’ll star opposite AnnaSophia Robb, as a “brooding heartthrob and ultimate insider who always plays the outsider. His presence at Carrie’s school will shake things up in a big way.”

The series is based on Candace Bushnell’s novel, a prequel to her best-seller “Sex And The City” which was adapted to the HBO show. It chronicles Carrie’s coming of age in the 1980s when she asks her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan.

Austin previously starred in the CW’s Life Unexpected and more recently, ABC Family’s Switched at Birth as Wilke.
