Nathan Fielder to Guest-Star on Fox's 'The Grinder'
Nathan Fielder is making an appearance on The Grinder.
The comedian is the latest to book a cameo on the Fox comedy starring Rob Lowe and Fred Savage. He joins the sitcom’s growing list of guest-stars, which includes Justified alum Timothy Olyphant and NASCAR driver Carl Edwards.
Fielder will play Officer Collins, a Boise policeman who's a big fan of Lowe’s character, Dean Sanderson, the former star of a hit legal drama. The officer is put in an awkward position when he unknowingly pulls his favorite actor over for a routine traffic stop. The episode, which will shoot this week, will air in early November.
The 32-year-old — who was also revealed to be the mastermind behind 'Dumb Starbucks,' the parody coffee shop that popped up in Los Feliz, Calif. last year — currently stars as a version of himself in Comedy Central docu-series Nathan for You, which returns for its third season Oct. 15.
He is repped by UTA, Rise Management and attorney Dan Fox.
