FXX's You're the Worst is ready to bring down another happy couple.

The Stephen Falk comedy has tapped Justin Kirk and Tara Summers to guest star in a season two episode, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The Weeds and Ringer alums will play Rob and Lexi, a couple whom Gretchen (Aya Cash) meets at the local coffee shop. They'll appear in an episode called "LCD Soundsystem" on the comedy that returns in September. (Check out their YTW debut, above.)

Rob is further described as a film preservationist and certified "cool dad," who has convinced himself that he’s happy with his newfound domesticity, but secretly longs for his old life of swing-dancing at The Derby and indie comedy night at Largo. But a chance encounter with Gretchen might give him the out he’s been looking for. 

Lexi is a Mini Cooper-driving green space architect, who traded her life of partying for one of pressed juice and preschool interviews. However, the delicate facade of her marriage is thrown into chaos when Gretchen enters her life.

They join a roster of new faces joining the sophomore cult comedy including Collette Wolfe as Edgar's (Desmin Borges) new friend; The Office's Andy Buckley as Jimmy's (Chris Geere) agent; and Mageina Tovah as Paul's (Allan McLeod) new love interest.

Kirk, whose credits include Wayward Pines, Tyrant and Modern Family, is repped by UTA, Management 360 and PJ Shapiro; Summers (Mercy Street, Stalker, Rake) is with Gersh.
