RICHARD KAHAN plays Gil (18). He would love to have just a little of Chris' cool rub off on him, but deep down he has the gnawing sense that he's condemned to be an also-ran. He and Kat almost had something once - but that was before she knew he was the secret, online, admirer that intrigued her. And Erin liked him once - for about 5 minutes. But it's trying to recapture those 5 minutes that drive him to his greatest achievement to date - writing a play that not only will impress Erin but also gets him a love scene with Laurel! It's foolproof- for anyone but Gil.

What, or who, will inspire him to make a move?
