Bailee Madison Is Mulaney's New BFF

Bailee Madison Mulaney

John Mulaney is about to meet his match — his 13-year-old female match.

Bailee Madison (Trophy WifeThe Fosters) will guest-star an upcoming episode of Fox’s new fall comedy Mulaney, TVLine has learned exclusively, playing Ruby, the daughter of Julia, a woman Mulaney is dating. The snag? Mulaney wants out of the relationship, but he can’t bring himself to dump Julia because it would mean giving up his friendship with Ruby.

Ruby and Mulaney’s connection might sound weird to you — and, to be fair, it kind of is — but consider this: Ruby is described as the 13-year-old female version of Mulaney, complete with his sophisticated sense of humor. (Her favorite movie, for example, is Blazing Saddles.)

…No, never mind, it’s still weird.

Madison’s TV resume also includes recurring roles on shows like Once Upon a Time and Wizards of Waverly Place. She can next be seen starring opposite Catherine Bell in Hallmark Channel’s new series The Good Witch. She’s repped by Coast to Coast and John Carrabino Management.

Mulaney premieres Sunday, Oct. 5, at 9:30/8:30c on Fox.

    As if this show wasn’t bad enough?

    • bar says:

      You’ve got to be joking. Madison was super good on Trophy Wife, plus she’s only 14. Thanks for contributing to the struggles of young actors, truly.

  2. Tran says:

    Really hope Mulaney is going to flop big time on Sunday nights. Guess Fox is back to the “ratings basement”.

  3. L says:

    I loved her on Wizards. She’s super talented.

  4. Hipper says:

    i’m only checking out the pilot because i think mulaney is cute

  5. rkar7 says:

    I love his stand up and am looking forward to this show.

  6. Liz says:

    I’ve seen the first few episodes and the show is very funny! Just as good as his stand up, the show is charming and has good-vibe laughs. Great acting!

  7. Steven says:

    Absolutely love John Mulaney. I’ve seen his stand up live twice and he is hilarious. I don’t like this actress though. I didn’t like her as young Snow White and I hate her on The Fosters.

  8. Eva says:

    I love her, she’s very talented! I’m definitely giving Mulaney a chance.

  9. Jace says:

    Pretty disturbing to see a 13 year old made up like that.

    • S. says:

      Quite. Honestly if you said she was 22, I’d believe you. If she looks anything like that picture on the show, it’s gonna be kinda creepy.

  10. Heathers says:

    That girl is so effin annoying.

  11. Louie says:

    The way Fox is trying very hard to sell this cringe-worthy show, makes me think their creativity department is bone dry. I tried watching one of this guy’s comedy special and couldn’t get through 10 minutes.

  12. meresger says:

    Plot sounds bad enough without your picture-in-picture of smiling Mulaney and a sexed up 14 year old! The Lolita vibe is creepy!

    Trophy Wife was really, really good and funny :(
    Well, at least I have The Goldbergs from last year. Dammit, why ABC has such good comedy series ? (RIP Happy Endings, Bitch from Ap #32)
