Michael Rapaport and Greg Garcia have reunited.
The actor, who has recurred on Garcia’s “My Name is Earl,” has been cast on his “unauthorized” CBS comedy.
The comedy focuses on recently divorced Jack (played by “Up All Night’s” Will Arnett) whose parents (played by Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale) start having their own marital problems to complicate Jack’s life.
Rapaport will play the husband to Jack’s sister (played by “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s” Mary Elizabeth Ellis), Adam. He struggles to make a living selling mattresses.
“Raising Hope’s” Garcia is writing and exec producing the show. Veteran director James Burrows will helm the multi- camera CBS Television production. JB Smoove is also a co- star.
Garcia recently left “Raising Hope” and was replaced by Mike Mariano as showrunner on the show. Mariano had been an exec producer and writer on the show, and also worked with Garcia on “My Name is Earl.” Garcia has an overall deal with CBS Television Studios for four years.
Rapaport played Frank on “My Name is Earl,” and has also appeared on “The Mob Doctor,” “Prison Break,” “The War at Home” and “Friends.”
Rapaport is represented by Paradigm and Brillstein Entertainment.
