Ben and Kate is one of Fox's best and most successful new shows this season. Nax Faxon and Dakota Johnson star as brother and sister who are working together to raise Kate's young daughter. Each week the show provides heartfelt laughs with plenty of awkward moments.
Faxon recently told Zap2It that he is adjusting to his new role as a leading man. "It's been a welcome change. Usually I'm like the hip roommate who drops in and delivers a joke and then disappears, so it's a lot more work. But I fully embrace it," he said. "A lot of times you get typecast in terms of what they think you can do, and if you're not this supermodel-y guy, it's harder to get a lead part, so I really give them credit for pinning their hopes on a goofier-looking dude."
While Faxon continues to bring the laughs, the sitcom is lining up some big talent for its upcoming season. E! Online reports that Pitch Perfect star Brittany Snow is joining the comedy for a small arc. According to E! Snow will play Lila, a love interest for Ben. The pair will meet when she is out walking her dog and it quickly blossoms into a relationship.
Snow has not appeared on television since her stint on NBC's Harry's Law.
Ben and Kate airs Tuesdays at 8:30/7:30 c on Fox.
