(Newser) – Clark Gable's grandson: Destined to follow in his grandfather's elegant footsteps with roles just as legendary as Gone With the Wind's Rhett Butler? Er, maybe not. The current Clark Gable, who shares his grandfather's name, has a new gig that's not exactly sophisticated. He's the new host of Cheaters, the reality show in which jilted spouses and lovers confront their straying partners. The last host, Joey Greco, was once stabbed while producing an episode.

"I do have some minor concerns about this," the 23-year-old Gable, a model and aspiring actor, tells the Hollywood Reporter. "What I’m doing is dangerous. When you get people who are cheating on each other it gets very, very heated in some of the arguments." Up til now, Gable's biggest role was a small one in a low-budget Italian film. (Sorry, US readers—it doesn't look like it'll be released here.) But he could be about to hit the big-time: A reality show about the entire Gable family is also in the works. Cheaters' new season debuts in some markets this summer, and elsewhere in the fall.
