Toby Cavanaugh On Pretty Little Liars Will Be Cast As Liam Walker
In addition, Keegan Allen, who played Toby Cavanaugh on Pretty Little Liars will be cast as Liam Walker, Cordell’s younger brother. His character is described as “Walker’s younger gay and conservative brother who has been recently promoted to assistant DA.”
Newsbusters previously revealed that the original series aired for eighth seasons from 1993 to 2001. The iconic show starred Chuck Norris as a “wholesome, moral show about good vs. evil and roundhouse kicks.” However, the reboot will not be the same. It’s also unlikely that Norris will reprise his role on the show due to the new themes. The actor is known for his conservative beliefs. In a new political environment and a new era of entertainment thanks in part to streaming, fans can’t also expect the show to be portrayed the same way.
