“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” actor Nicholas Brendon will appear on the season finale of MTV’s “Faking It,” TheWrap has learned.

Brendon will play Jackson Lee, a professional artist and Hester High alum who’s interviewing art students for a prestigious fellowship. Incredibly talented, yet jaded and sarcastic, he challenges Liam’s (Gregg Sulkin) ideas about art, but ultimately becomes an unlikely mentor. He will appear on the season finale.
