But after seeing how things are going for nixed 15-year-old  X Factor contestant Astro, some may just change their outlook. In addition to his recent deal with Epic Records, Astro (real name Brian Bradley) is also making his way into the acting world: The rising star is appearing on tonight’s brand-new episode of Person of Interest. Check out EW’s exclusive clip, in which Astro plays a young man seeking justice for his murdered brother, who asks John Reese (Jim Caviezel) for help in his quest. Watch the two match wits here:

Person of Interest airs at 9 p.m. on CBS.
