English rocker Tom Vek is set to appear in US teen drama The OC.

The 24-year-old Londoner will follow in the footsteps of The Subways, The Killers and Jem, who have all appeared alongside Mischa Barton and Adam Brody on the hit Fox show.

The IF YOU WANT hitmaker will perform C-C (YOU SET ME ON FIRE) at Newport's fictional gig venue the Bait Shop.
