Durham, NC–raised Andre Leon Talley has signed on for three seasons of America’s Next Top Model. (Vogue readers will have read about ALT’s frequent trips to his hometown–and more specifically Duke University–during his highly publicized battle with the bulge.)

Because nothing says Prime Time like PBS.
