'You're the Worst' Books Echo Kellum (Exclusive)
FXX's You're the Worst continues to bulk up for season two.
The Stephen Falk comedy has enlisted Echo Kellum for a recurring role in season two, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Kellum, will play "Tall Nathan," a member of the improv group Edgar (Desmin Borges) joins this season. Called Tall Nathan to distinguish himself from the countless other Nathans in the improv comedy world, he's part of Dorothy's (Collette Wolfe) comedy team, "Hey, Put That Down Brian." Good-natured and always down to be part of the joke, Nathan is the self-appointed leader of "Brian," and thinks the funniest thing in the world is pulling his testicles out of his pants. Kellum will first appear in the "All About That Paper" episode. (Get a first look at the episode, above.)
UCB and improv/skech comic Kellum, who next appears on The CW's Arrow, counts Sean Saves the World as well as Ben and Kate among his credits. He's repped by Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment, Talentworks and attorney Melissa Fox.
Kellum becomes the latest addition to the YTW season two guest list that also includes Justin Kirk, Tara Summers, Wolfe as Edgar's (Desmin Borges) new friend; The Office's Andy Buckley as Jimmy's (Chris Geere) agent; Mageina Tovah as Paul's (Allan McLeod) new love interest and Jimmy's three sisters.
Season two of YTW, which will also feature a rap feud, premieres Sept. 9 at 10:30 p.m. on FXX. For more scoop, check out our deep dive interview with Falk about season two here.
