If you've been watching TBS lately, you may have noticed that the cable network has already begun promoting their upcoming comedy series Men at Work. Production is not only underway for the series, which premieres next month, but it already has a few guest stars lined up to make an appearance.
Set to premiere on Thursday, May 24, the Breckin Meyer created comedy Men at Work stars Danny Masterson, Michael Cassidy, Adam Busch and James Lesure as four buddies who work together at a magazine. Masterson plays Milo, a recently dumped guy whom his friends hope to get back into the single scene. Meyer's involvement, the promising cast and bro-focused plot all contribute to the appeal of the series. As do the recently announced guest stars.
TBS shared word today that Stacy Keibler, J.K. Simmons, and Kathy Najimy have all signed on to guest star in the show at some point. Known for her work as an actress, model and wrestler (and for being George Clooney's girlfriend), Keibler is set to play a woman who "hooks up with Milo and Gibbs at a bar and offers them an interesting proposition." Interesting… We could jump to all the wrong conclusions based on that vague description. Or maybe the right ones.
Meanwhile, J.K. Simmons will play "P.J. Jordan, the stern and demanding publisher of the magazine where the guys work. He also happens to be the father of Neal's girlfriend, Amy." Maybe this is just the geek in me talking, but the name and description sound like a fairly big nod to Simmons' take on the demanding newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson in the Spiderman movies. Whether or not that proves to be the case, Simmons is awesome, so this is a casting win for the series.
Finally, Kathy Najimy is set to play Sasha Ryan, "a well-known sex blogger being interviewed by Tyler and photographed by Gibbs…and attracting the attention of both." If the name's not jumping out at you, perhaps you remember her from her roles in Veronica's Closet, Sister Act, or Rat Race, the latter of which connects her with Men at Work creator Breckin Meyer. I sort of love the idea of her playing a sex blogger. Another casting win and even more reason to look forward to TBS' new comedy.
