Exclusive: Cougar Town's Josh Hopkins and Others Find Work on New TBS Comedy

Josh Hopkins, as he awaits word on the fate of ABC’s Cougar Town, has lined up another gig, on the new TBS comedy Men at Work.

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.
