Exclusive: Happy Endings Casts Married Alum

Remember when we told you in Ask Ausiello that Happy Endings was about to introduce the new character of Dave’s old buddy, Glaze? Well, now we know who’s going to play him: Married to the Kellys alum Derek Waters.

The up-’n’-comer, who’s also had parts in movies like He’s Just Not That Into You and Hall Pass, “knows [series regulars] Casey Wilson and Adam Pally,” says exec producer Jonathan Groff. “And he has a strong improv/sketch background. We’re always looking for those folks ’cause they give us so much extra.”

Which is going to be crucial, considering the mission the show’s powers that be have undertaken. “We’re trying to build out the world of our characters, with parents [and] other idiot friends from college,” Groff explains. So, as you’d expect, the hope is that the role of Glaze will recur. Guess this means that he and Dave will get past that age-old incident in which Alex accused her then-fiance’s pal of selling one of her bras on Craigslist.

  • When I read the title I thought you meant married as in married with children. Got slightly excited alas…

  • Good casting choice. I’ve never seen Married to the Kellys but I know Waters from Channel 101 and a bunch of the webseries he’s been involved with over the years. His most famous is probably Drunk History from Funny or Die which he created and costars in.

  • It doesn’t matter who’s being cast, everyone is pretty funny in the show. I can’t wait for the premiere.

  • I love this show, hopefully it will attract a modest audience in the post-Modern Family timeslot. I remember Married to the Kellys, it was on TGIF back in the day (2003).

  • My brothers have been raving about this show since it aired in the spring and I FINALLY watched the episodes that were up on ABC.com over the weekend and I LOVE this show!! They are all funny, but Max takes the cake for me. HILARIOUS.
