No less than Superman may bust up a nascent romance on the new Fox comedy Enlisted (premiering Friday at 9:30/8:30c).
Sources confirm for TVLine that Brandon Routh is set to appear in at least two episodes on the military-themed comedy as Sgt. Brandon Stone, a soldier who until very recently was serving overseas and now will serve as an adversary for Private Practice alum Chris Lowell’s character, Corporal Derrick Hill — having once been wed to his love interest (played by Jessy Hodges of the web series Anyone But Me).
Routh himself revealed the gig during a recent red carpet appearance, but offered no details.
Since donning Clark Kent’s spectacles back in the 2006 motion picture Superman Returns, Routh’s TV credits have included an arc on Chuck, the CBS sitcom Partners and the Crackle series Chosen. He also can be seen on an upcoming episode of CBS’ The Millers.
Once again, Enlisted premieres this Friday, following Raising Hope.
