Tom (Bob Clendenin) may never be a full-fledged member of the cul-de-sac crew on “Cougar Town,” but for at least part of Season 4, he won’t have to stand outside Jules’ (Courteney Cox) window by himself.
The show, which is moving from ABC to TBS, has cast Ali Wentworth as a love interest for Tom. Wentworth tweeted a picture of herself on set on Monday (Aug. 27), and she also filmed her web series “Daily Shot” from downtown Gulfhaven, with “Cougar Town” star Busy Philipps as the guest.
Wentworth (who’s married to “Good Morning America” anchor George Stephanopoulos) co-created and starred in “Head Case” for Starz and is maybe best known for playing Jerry’s girlfriend in “The Soup Nazi” episode of “Seinfeld.” She was also a frequent guest on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and was in the cast of “In Living Color” for several seasons in the early ’90s.
“Cougar Town” will premiere on TBS in early 2013.
