As first reported by EW.com, Coupe will play Nate’s (Will Arnett) ex, starting in the Oct. 24 episode of the freshman comedy. This marks the actress’ first big role since “Happy Endings” was canceled by ABC this spring.
In booking the “Millers” gig, Coupe joins Adam Pally (guesting on “The Mindy Project”) and Damon Wayans Jr. (returning to appear in his old “New Girl” role) in securing post-“Happy Endings” television guest-work.
“The Millers” looks to be well on its way to being the best-cast new show of the fall. Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges co-star with Arnett. The supporting cast includes Jayma Mays (“Glee”) as Nate’s sister Debbie and Nelson Franklin as her husband. In the show, Nate is a newly divorced man whose return to the single life is interrupted by his bickering parents’ interference.
“The Millers” premieres Thursday, Oct. 3 on CBS.
