Oswalt is cast to play Schmidt’s former business partner. One of the show’s writers characterized the relationship as Oswalt playing “the [Steve] Wozniak to Walden’s [Steve] Jobs.” But it seems that the computer entrepreneurs may have had a little falling out. We’re guessing that Schmidt ended up with all the money and Oswalt’s character ended up holding the bag.
Lucky for everyone involved, Alan (Jon Cryer) is there to maintain the peace, or at least as much as he can.
Oswalt’s episode airs on Feb. 27 at 9 p.m. ET.
