    So Rick Rickman and Penny Hartz had a second date after all, eh?

  2. D'Arcy says:

    He also guested on Happy Endings as Dave’s therapist who dates Penny for a bit.

    Anyway, he’s always hilarious so this show is shaping up well.

  3. Joey says:

    Glad Ken will co-star on the show with Casey. He’s a funny actor.

  4. Studz says:

    David Caspe, Casey Wilson AND Ken Marino now. I thought I was excited for this LAST week. I can’t see how this could possibly turn out badly now.

  5. Zach says:

    You know what I noticed? He dated her writing partner, June Diane Raphael, in Party Down. Can’t wait to watch this. NBC, picking this up is a Ron Donald Do!

    This just keeps getting better!

  7. Jessica says:

    This makes me even more excited! Love Casey Wilson and Ken Marino! Really looking forward to it. NBC better not mess this up!

  8. xx says:

    Yet another casting where the man is way too old- he’s twelve years older than she is! They better not pretend the characters are the same age.

      I was thinking that too, figured they’d get someone closer to Casey’s age, but Marino looks like a young 45, he’s barely aged at all since the days he was on MTV’s The State in the early 90s. I was thinking Adam Pally would’ve been perfect and was kinda secretly hoping they’d get cast him in the role, even though I knew it wasn’t likely since he’s on Mndy Project now.

  9. Puhleaze says:

    Not sure that I have ever looked forward to a comedy more than this show. LOVE them both.

  10. Mark says:

    Ah. I was hoping for Tommy Dewey from the Mindy Project. Thought they would be funny together. Ken is okay.

  11. Sarah says:

    So pleased with these news!

  12. AmbleAlong says:

    Casey Wilson and Ken Marino – This show should be comedy gold! Let’s hope they give them the awesome scripts they deserve with flexibility to improv…

  13. Jack says:

    Been a big fan of Marino since “The State”. He is a hysterical guy, and I am hoping this one is a winner.

  14. Schlee says:

    Ken Marino! Casey Wilson! Created by the Happy Endings guy! I think I found my new favorite show.

  15. Will says:

    NBC has a built in viewer right here. Yes please!!

  16. Penny says:

    This show is gonna be, say it with me…AH-MAH-ZING!
