Wilmer Valderrama‘s NBC series “Awake” is on a production hiatus while the creative team takes some time to catch up — giving the actor a little bit of unexpected time to explore new projects. First up? ABC’s hilarious new comedy “Suburgatory.”
Valderrama, who was recently caught smooching Demi Lovato after she spent the night at his Los Angeles pad, will play a hot guru in town to provide spiritual guidance to the moms of Chatwin… among other things.
“He is highly spiritual, with a great head of hair. Self-trained in the art of Reiki, Yoni stands alone as Chatswin’s new age guru, making him extremely popular with moms,” series creator Emily Kapnek tells TV Guide, who first reported the casting. “He’s also great in bed.” His episode will air in early 2012.
Catch “Suburgatory” on Wednesday nights at 8:30 p.m. EST on ABC.
