Glee favorite Mike O’Malley has joined the cast of NBC’s comedy pilot Welcome to the Family.
In the single-cam sitcom from Mike Sikowitz (Rules of Engagement), cultures collide when a white family and a Latino family are bonded together when their children fall in love and soon must deal with an unplanned pregnancy.
O’Malley will play Dan, an affable and charming orthodontist who’s not equipped to handle his 18-year-old daughter’s unexpected bun in the oven. But he is energized by the idea of starting his next chapter when she leaves the nest.
In addition to Glee, O’Malley’s credits include Yes, Dear, My Own Worst Enemy. My Name Is Earl and an arc on the current season of FX’s Justified. He also continues to serve as a writer on Showtime’s Shameless.
