Is this the kind of airline executive who insists his stewardesses stay skinny and chaste? EW has learned exclusively that Scott Cohen — star of USA’s Necessary Roughness who’s also known for his stint as Max Medina on Gilmore Girls — will play a (skeevy?) vice president on Pan Am this fall.

Medina will portray Everett, a Pan Am higher up, for a three-episode arc that will begin during the show’s fourth week. And what do we mean by skeevy? He has a quirky mistress named Ginny Saddler (Erin Cummings), though his character has been described as “a serious man who is light and fun on the surface.”

Pan Am is a ’60s soap following the lives and loves of a team at the legendary airline. The show premieres Sept. 25.
