Appearing in the same episode as Hopkins are Christopher Masterson (Malcolm in the Middle) — aka the real-life brother of Men at Work regular Danny Masterson (The ’70s Show) — and Kevin Pollak (A Few Good Men), TVLine has learned.
Men at Work revolves around four guy pals who toil at a magazine, just as one of them (Danny Masterson’s Milo) is rebounding from a bad break-up. James Lesure (Las Vegas), Michael Cassidy (The O.C.) and Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) round out the core quad.
In the series’ fourth episode, Hopkins will guest-star as an attractive man who is seen getting cozy with the steady girlfriend of Busch’s character at a hotel, while Masterson will play an employee at said hotel.
Pollak, in a separate storyline, will play Pavel, the Latvian superintendent at the building where Cassidy’s character lives.
In addition to Men at Work and a recent visit to In Plain Sight, Hopkins in February booked a “second position” pilot, the NBC comedy Lady Friends, where he plays husband to Andrea Anders (Better Off Ted). NBC and ABC reveal their fall pick-ups next Monday and Tuesday, respectively.
TBS’ Men at Work premieres Thursday, May 24, at 10/9c. Previously announced guest stars include The Closer‘s J.K. Simmons (as the magazine’s publisher), My Name Is Earl‘s Ethan Suplee, Kathy Najimy and Stacy Keibler.
