Scoop: Jay Mohr Banished to Suburgatory, to Recur as Cheryl Hines' Hubby

Gary’s unmarried days are over.

Jay Mohr is returning to the sitcom world with a major recurring role on ABC’s promising comedy Suburgatory, sources confirm to TVLine.

The Gary Unmarried star will play Steve Royce, the absentee husband of Cheryl Hines’ shallow, Red Bull-guzzlin’ kept housewife, Dallas.

Steve models his life after the two Donalds: Trump and Draper. In business, he’s a shark, which affords his family their elegant lifestyle. At home… well, he’s not really at home much. When it comes to monogamy, Steven and Dallas employ a “don’t ask, don’t tell” philosophy.

Suburgatory stars Jane Levy as the quintessential New York City teen whose life takes a “horrific” turn when she’s forced to relocate to the ‘burbs with her dad (Law & Order‘s Jeremy Sisto). It premieres Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 8:30 pm.

  • Hopefully he can still find time to record his podcast, Mohr Stories. The best podcast on the web…

  • I don’t know how “difficult it is to watch” Mohr but his podcast is hilarious and he’s a pretty experienced comic — if he’s given good lines I’d imagine he’d be great, especially on this snarky a show.
