Scoop: Glee's Jayma Mays Joins CBS' New Sitcom The Millers as Will Arnett's Sister
For Jayma Mays, where there’s a Will there’s a way.
The actress, who spent the last four years romancing Matthew Morrison’s Will Schuester on Glee, has joined CBS’ new fall comedy The Millers as Will Arnett’s sister, TVLine has learned.
Mays replaces Mary Elizabeth Ellis, who played the Debbie character in the pilot. (Producers are also recasting Deb’s hubby, originally portrayed by Michael Rappaport.)
It’s not clear what Mays’ new series regular gig means for her Glee alter ego Emma, who married Will in last month’s finale. (It’s worth noting that Mays only appeared on the Fox musical dramedy on a recurring basis last season.)
