Gilpin — whose TV credits include CSI, Grey’s Anatomy and Make It or Break It — will play Alex, the new boss at Full Steam magazine, where Danny Masterson (That ’70s Show), Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), James Lesure (Las Vegas) and Michael Cassidy’s (The O.C.) characters work. Money lured Alex to the men’s mag from her number two position at a Vogue-like publication — but her unorthodox methods leave the guys scratching their heads.

Additionally, Sarah Wright (Millicent Gergich on Parks and Recreation) will guest in the Season 2 premiere as a “missed connection” for Milo (Masterson) who’s not thrilled to discover he’s the person she’s supposed to meet.

The bachelor’s love life will continue to heat up when Stephanie Lemelin’s Rachel returns for a two-episode arc. Back in the show’s pilot, she left Milo for a threesome with Gibbs (Lesure) and another girlfriend.

Men at Work will return to TBS in 2013.
