Former Hagerstown resident Jeff Perryson will play the role of police officer Ben Whitmore on Wednesday night's episode of "The Young Americans" on the Warner Brothers network.

Perryson, 22, also appears as "Jock A" in John Waters' latest film, "Cecil B. Demented." Perryson has three speaking lines in the movie, but said he appears on screen for a good portion of the film's final 20 minutes.

Perryson's previous acting credits include a guest role about five years ago on NBC-TV's "Homicide: Life on the Street."

"I'm pumped about being on 'The Young Americans,' " said Perryson, who added that Whitmore's character may return for four or five more episodes next season on the 9 p.m. show.

"It's not my first role, but it's definitely been a great learning experience," he said.

Perryson is originally from Connecticut but moved with his family to Hagerstown when he was about 13. He graduated from North Hagerstown High and went to what was then called Hagerstown Junior College for two years.
