Ken Marino to Guest Star in CBS' 'Life in Pieces' (Exclusive)
Ken Marino is making an appearance in Life in Pieces.
The Party Down alum has been cast in a guest role in the upcoming CBS comedy. He'll play Will, Matt's (Thomas Sadoski) inappropriate coworker who is always making crude jokes about the ladies in the office and getting a little too involved in everyone's personal business.
The single-camera comedy centers on one big, happy family and their sometimes awkward (and often funny) milestone moments. The family's lives unfold in four short stories each week, told by its various members. The ensemble cast includes Dianne Wiest, James Brolin, Zoe Lister-Jones, Colin Hanks, Angelique Cabral, Thomas Sadoski, Betsy Brandt, Dan Bakkedahl, Niall Cunningham, Holly J. Barrett and Giselle Eisenberg.
Marino can currently be seen in Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Last year, he starred in NBC's short-lived comedy Marry Me, opposite Casey Wilson, after recurring in the final season of HBO’s Danny McBride vehicle Eastbound and Down. His other credits include The State, Children's Hospital, Veronica, Role Models and Wanderlust, which he co-wrote with Wet Hot co-creator David Wain. Marino, who is repped by Principato-Young and Paradigm, will be seen next in Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter’s 70's rock drama Vinyl on HBO.
Life in Pieces premieres Monday, September 21 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
