Will Reeve is coming to a TV near you!
The youngest son of late actor Christopher Reeve has joined ESPN's SportsCenter broadcast team as one of three new on-air reporters, according to a new report.
The 22-year-old — who shares the same broad shoulders and dashing smile as his father, who sadly passed away in 2004 — was hired alongside comedian Reese Waters and social media correspondent Sarina Morales.

The trio will produce special reports for the franchise program — such as going on the road with a college football team — as the network aims to reach younger audiences.

“I’ll be different from a traditional ‘SportsCenter’ reporter because I won’t be behind a desk in a suit,” Will told ''The Wrap'' in a new interview. “These stories are not going to appear on air and then fade off — they are going to get an extended life digitally and on social media.”

Will was just a toddler when his 'Superman' star dad became paralyzed in a horse riding accident in 1995. Nearly 10 years after the tragic incident, Christopher — who's also father to son Matthew, 36, and daughter Alex, 32, from his first marriage to Gae Exton — passed away at age 52 from cardiac arrest. Two years later, Will's mother, Dana Reeve, also died at age 44 after battling lung cancer.
