His story will pair him with Casey Wilson’s perpetually single Penny, whose feelings for pal Dave were shut down in the Season 2 finale by the apparent rekindling of his romance with former fiancée Alex.

Zano’s character, Pete, will first show up in the fifth episode of Season 3. But theirs is not a case of love at first sight; in fact, Penny thinks she might be too good for him!
