East Is East star Jimi Mistry has joined the cast of new E4 drama The Cut.
The actor, who shot to fame in EastEnders as Dr. Fonseca, will play a music teacher in the six-part series, which follows the lives of four kids at a fictional London stage school.
The show - from Life On Mars producer Kudos - is being aimed at a younger teen audience than E4 megahit Skins. "It's completely different from Skins," a source told DS. "In The Cut the kids are in a highly competitive, dog-eat-dog environment where they'll do anything to succeed and get ahead of their peers. And they're all drop-dead gorgeous!"
The Cut airs on E4 from November.
