Jackson will play Cooper, a trauma victim who bonds with Silver (Jessica Stroup) over the realization -- at a very young age -- how precious life is. He is filming his guest spot this week.

The news comes just one week after "Entertainment Tonight" announced that the 16-year-old Jackson would be joining the entertainment newsmagazine as an on-air correspondent. "I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor," Jackson told "ET's" Brooke Anderson last week.
