Callen will play Mr. Oxford, an arrogant guy with a chip on his shoulder. He's further described as a self-made man, a financial entrepreneur with plenty of swagger who is a major patron of the basketball team D.B. Russell's (Ted Danson) son is part of but isn't happy when the coach regards him as just another annoying fan.

He's slated to appear in the sixth episode of upcoming 13th season, scheduled for Nov. 7.

In addition to MadTV and HIMYM, the Innovative-repped actor's credits also include In Plain Sight, Californication and Death Valley.
