The Gary Unmarried and Nip/Tuck actress will appear in two episodes of the CBS comedy as a love interest of Alan’s (Jon Cryer) who has a surprising past, TVLine has learned exclusively. Her character, also named Paula, debuts on Dec. 5.

Additionally, Diane Farr (Rescue Me, Numb3rs) is set to appear in Marshall’s second episode (airing Dec. 13) as Rachel, a woman with ties to Paula.

Fun fact: Marshall and Farr both previously recurred on Californication as “lady friends” of David Duchovny’s Hank.

    • I don’t get why people say stuff like this. Do you even watch the show? It’s a lot funnier than any of the other comedies CBS has

      • Certain shows engender hostility in people–who knows why? People who don’t watch (and in many cases have *never* watched) some shows hate them for reasons they may not even realize themselves. If I had to guess, it’s because they resent the success of these shows when their personal favorites fail year after year. We all have shows that have been canceled after a few months while some show we have no interest in lasts for many years. Some neurotic people manage to turn that disappointment into anger.

  • Is the surprising past that she used to date woman (Diane Farr)?

    • That would not surprise me. Paula Marshall frequently plays lesbian characters.

      Also, I’m really excited for Divide & Conquer, a USA comedy pilot starring Diane Farr and Greg Grunberg. Heard great things about the script.

  • Happy to see Paula Marshall again – one of my favorites. Lucky Alan – Paula Marshall and Courtney T Smith. Who said Alan has all the bad luck?

  • when the season started this year I was disappointed! the show was losing its pizazz! But since the niece showed up she has inserted a whole new brand of comedy!
    Now with my fave PAULA MARSHALL(loved her since Gary, Unmarried) making an appearance gives a WHOLE NEW MEANING to keep watching!
    Wish it were more than 2 eps!!!
