It’s safe to say that Dax Shepherd has been a busy man as of late. He recently started his new podcast, Armchair Expert, booked a new pilot on Fox, and now he’s also lined up a recurring guest spot on Netflix’s The Ranch.

Shepard joins the cast, reuniting with his ol’ Punk’d buddy Ashton Kutcher, after the departure of Danny Masterson who was let go due to sexual assault accusations. He will be playing Luke Matthews, “a former soldier who has ties to the Iron River Ranch, which is run by the Bennett family. Luke will bond and match wits with Colt (Kutcher) and Bennett patriarch Beau (Sam Elliott), but his past may come back to haunt him.”

Kutcher also shared the news on Twitter.

Much like its previous seasons, Season 3 of The Ranch will be split into two 10-episode halves. The first half will still feature Masterson’s character Rooster, as they had already filmed prior to his firing, but his character will be written out by the time the back half begins, making way for Shepard. At the moment Shepard is currently expected to appear in 5 episodes.
