The CW's multi-ethnic Dynasty re-imagining has cast another key role. The O.C. and Ugly Betty alum Alan Dale will recreate the role of Carrington butler Joseph Anders, played by the late Lee Bergere in the original ABC primetime hit. Variety broke the news.

Joseph was hired by energy baron Blake Carrington's (Grant Show) first wife, Alexis (who doesn't appear in early drafts of the Dynasty 2.0 pilot script). He remains steadfastly loyal to the first Mrs. Carrington and wary of Blake's second wife, Cristal (Nathalie Kelley).

Playing a servant will be a departure for Dale, known for portraying powerful men like real estate mogul Caleb Nichol on The O.C. and media magnate Bradford Meade on Ugly Betty. The CW's Dynasty reunites the actor with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. The O.C. creators are serving as executive producers on Dynasty 2.0.
