Erin Cahill & Michael Copon on "Greek" (2008)

Time Force alums Erin Cahill (Jen, Time Force) and Michael Copon (Lucas, Time Force) both appeared on the ABC Family original series "Greek" this week. Cahill played a major guest role as Trish, a bartender who interacts with several of the fraternity guys who attempt to get alcohol using fake I.D.'s. But when main character Rusty uses the I.D. of a real person, Trish recognizes his new alter ego and is a major fan of his underground music. Rusty plays the part when Trish invites him out for a special night. But, when he arrives he discovers that she's actually invited him to her sister's wedding. Since they are both huge fans of his, she asks him to sing at the wedding, forcing him to reveal his ruse. Michael Copon reprises his role as Shane, who spurned Rusty's sister Casey's affections in a previous episode, "Mr. Purr-fect," after he was paid off by her ex. Shane appears in one scene of this episode, where he reveals that fact to Casey's best friend. Cahill and Copon do not appear together in the episode "Barely Legal."
