Friday Night Lights MVP Jesse Plemons is joining NBC’s midseason sitcom Bent in a recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The comedy, from Scrubs scribe Tad Quill, stars Amanda Peet as a newly divorced single mother who hires an unapologetic womanizer (Perfect Couples‘ David Walton) to remodel her home. Plemons will play a member of the oddball construction crew that also includes Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s J.B. Smooth.
The impressive cast also features Arrested Development patriarch Jeffrey Tambor and Brothers & Sisters‘ Matt Lestcher.
Plemons’ post-FNL credits include a role in next summer’s Peter Berg-helmed blockbuster Battleship.
