Scott Speedman will be joining Wes Bentley in the pilot for Ryan Murphy's HBO drama Open. According to Deadline, Speedman will play a "handsome sports marketing executive," and the show is about the many expressions of human sexuality, so that handsomeness is deeply essential. It's not that Open doesn't sound good — it's a Ryan Murphy sex show, it sounds like a kinky dream come true — but there's a tiny little piece of us that was hoping to see Speedman pop up on The Americans. Felicity forever.
