Klein, who also has a recurring role on FX’s “Wilfred,” will do a one-off appearance in an episode this fall, FOX confirms (The Hollywood Reporter broke the news). He’ll play a character named Brad, a locally famous real estate agent.
Here’s where the mystery comes in: Burt and Virginia (Garret Dillahunt and Martha Plimpton) will tell Jimmy (Lucas Neff) that Brad is his “‘almost’ long-lost older brother.” Which means … what, exactly? FOX says the episode will explore how, had things gone differently during Jimmy’s childhood, he and Brad might have been siblings.
“Raising Hope” will also feature guest turns by Melanie Griffith (as Sabrina’s mom), Tippi Hedren (Sabrina’s grandmother), Wilmer Valderrama (Sabrina’s mom’s younger boyfriend) and Jenny Slate (a social worker who checks up on the Chances). The show’s third-season premiere is set for Oct. 2.
