Southland has nabbed One Tree Hill alum Chad Michael Murray as a recurring guest star for this February's upcoming Season 5.

The actor will play Officer Dave Mendoza in a number of episodes, a well-liked cop with a reputation for being a loose cannon. His off-duty behavior serves as a bad influence on cast regular Ben McKenzie, who plays the beloved but troubled Officer Ben Sherman.

Southland Season 5 is set to debut Wednesday, February 13th at 10/9c, only on TNT.
