'The Finder's' Mercedes Masohn Among Trio Cast in ABC's 'Mixology'
ABC's high-concept comedy Mixology has added three to its cast.
The show from the writers of The Hangover is set in the world of a sexy Manhattan bar and chronicles the exploits of singles in search of love -- all during the course of one night.
The Finder and 666 Park Avenue's Mercedes Masohn will play Maya, a jock-turned-sports attorney who's sick of weepy meterosexual men and doesn't have time for modern girls. She's looking to make a real human connection but finds it impossible to find a guy tough enough to keep up with her. She's repped by Greene & Associates and Luber Roklin.
Also cast in the comedy from writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are Parks and Recreation alum Blake Lee, who will play Tom, an attorney described as a sweet everyman who was just dumped and is at the bar with friends trying to get back out there again. He's repped by UTA and Management 360.
Lastly, comedian Andrew Santino has been tapped to play Bruce, Tom's best friend from college who is described as the antithesis of what women find appealing: he's short, fat, ugly, rude and broke and works as a phone operator in Chico's, a clothing store for moms. Despite his lack of marketability with the fairer sex, he's smart, funny and brutally honest and is the little guy most likely to pull off the upset at the bar. Repped by CAA, Underground and Bloom Hergott, his credits include MTV's revived Punk'd.
The trio join the previously cast Kate Simses, who is Maya's best friend from work -- a cute, smart and indecisive woman who's engaged to a boring banker.
The single-camera comedy hails from ABC Studios and Ryan Seacrest Productions, with Nina Wass on board to exec produce alongside Lucas and Moore.
