We’re about to learn more about the background of the titular lead character of Fox’s Star. EW can reveal exclusively that Stephen Dorff (Wheeler) is joining the drama as the father of Star Davis (Jude Demorest).

Dorff will play the edgy Bobby Dean, who’s basically the male version of his daughter. Bobby Dean has tons of swagger and returns to Atlanta to reunite with his family.

Star marks a reunion for Dorff and series creator Lee Daniels, who previously collaborated on Daniels’ first film Shadowboxer.

Dorff will next be seen in the film Don’t Let Go.

Star returns for its second season Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
