Variety is reporting that our One Tree Hill Alum Joe Manganiello will be recast due to a health issues. He was cast as Six Team member Rip Taggart.

It’s a pre-existing condition and is manageable, however with the vigorous amounts of physical activity required on our History Channel show, Six, he will not be able to continue. We wish him the best and we were glad to have him back in Wilmington for the short time he was here.

Production should resume in May if they find a new actor is to replace Manganiello.
