IGN has some details on new people to join the cast of The OC. Three new actors, in fact.

Resident Evil actor Eric Mabius has joined the cast in a recurring role as the new Dean of Discipline at Harbor School. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Mabius’ character joins the school’s staff amid heightened concerns about the safety of students. Naturally, he quickly comes into conflict with Ryan, Seth, Marissa and Summer.

In addition to his role in Resident Evil, you may recognize Mabius as the boyfriend of Mia Kirshner’s character from the first season of Showtime’s The L Word.

Additionally, Actress Autumn Reeser (Complete Savages) is joining The O.C. as a new student at Harbor who becomes Summer’s rival. TV Guide tips that the new girl, Taylor Townsend, will reportedly battle Summer (Rachel Bilson) for control of Harbor School’s social scene.

As previously reported, Star Trek: Voyager’s Seven of Nine, Jeri Ryan, has beamed down to Newport Beach for a recurring role as a “mysterious woman” that Kristen (Kelly Rowan) befriends in rehab.
