Almost Human is adding John Larroquette to its ranks.
The Emmy-winning actor (Night Court, Boston Legal) will recur on the new Fox drama (bowing via a two-night event on November 17 and 18), Fox announced Tuesday.
Larroquette joins Almost Human — a series set 35 years in the future, when all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved, human-like androids — as Nigel, a sympathetic, highly intelligent and slightly broken roboticist.
