Looks like Tom, fringe member of the Gulfhaven cul-de-sac crew and frequent occupant of the general area outside Jules' bedroom window, is set to have a love interest in the upcoming fourth season.
Ali Wentworth has been cast as the love interest of the neighborhood's affable loner, but no word on how long she'll be sticking around. Bob Clendenin plays Tom, Jules' (Courtney Cox) oddball widowed neighbor, desperate to be a regular part of the Gulfhaven gang but always finding peculiar ways of doing so.
This isn't the only change "Cougar Town" has seen, as the underrated Bill Lawrence sitcom has been picked up by cable network TBS after its three seasons on ABC.
Wentworth tweeted photos of herself hanging out on set and also filmed an episode of her web series "Daily Shot" with the series' Busy Philipps on as guest. The actress has previous credits on Fox's classic sketch comedy show "In Living Color" and more recently created and starred in Starz' "Head Case." She is perhaps best known as Jerry Seinfeld's schmoopy, whom he slighted in favor of delicious, warm soup courtesy of the Soup Nazi. Let's hope Tom treats her a little better.
"Cougar Town" is set to premiere on TBS in early 2013.
