Brad Garrett to Play Advertising Partner in 'The Crazy Ones'
‘The Crazy Ones’ is set to debut on Thursday, Sept. 26 on CBS, and it already stars two big names with plenty of TV experience in Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams. According to Entertainment Weekly, the show will get another TV veteran as Brad Garrett will play a key role on the sitcom.
The show takes place in a Chicago advertising agency Lewis, Roberts & Roberts, where Simon Roberts (Williams) works with his daughter and protégée, Sydney (Gellar).
Garrett will take the role of the other partner for the agency, playing Mr. Lewis. His first name has not yet been reported.
At least two episodes of this season will feature Garrett, however, with the nature of role, he may appear regularly.
This isn’t the first time Williams and Garrett have worked together. The duo starred together in ‘Night at the Museum.’
Garrett most notably played Ray’s brother Robert on ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ for nine seasons. Recently, he played Max Green on ABC’s ‘How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life),’ but ABC cancelled the show in May.
The show created by David E. Kelley will feature many celebrity cameos. These celebrities will play themselves as they work with the ad agency to market real-life products—as can be seen with Kelly Clarkson singing about McDonalds in the trailer below.
