Former “Daily Show” correspondent-turned-“Children’s Hospital” star Rob Corddry will branch out for a recurring role on “Happy Endings” Season 3. The actor will guest star for at least two episodes as Chicago’s “Car Czar” and Jane’s new boss.
According to TVLine, Jane meets Corddry’s character when she tags along with Penny to help her pal buy a new car. (She’s definitely a person you want on your side during a negotiation, that’s for sure.) Corddry is the owner of the dealership, and hires her as a salesperson when she impresses him with her knowledge of cars.
