Fiona may actually find love in the second season of About a Boy.

EW has learned exclusively that Chris Diamantopoulos will appear in at least two episodes as a love interest for Minnie Driver’s needy single mom.

The Episodes and 24 alum will play Mr. Chris, Marcus’ charismatic, larger-than-life new English teacher who immediately has sparks with Fiona and has tension with Will.

About a Boy returns Oct. 14 at 9:30 p.m. on NBC.
