Geoff Stults The Odd Couple

Geoff Stults will be dividing his time between two very odd couples.

The Enlisted actor has scored recurring roles on CBS’ Matthew Perry-Thomas Lennon remake of The Odd Couple and Netflix’s Jane Fonda-Lily Tomlin comedy Grace and Frankie, TVLine has learned.

On The Odd Couple, which is slated to bow at midseason, Stults will play Murph, an ex-baseball player whose career was cut short by an injury. He’s a sturdy Midwesterner with an easygoing charm and, now that his career is over, he loves hanging out with Oscar (Matthew Perry) and the guys while he figures out what to do next.

Grace and Frankie, meanwhile, finds the actor portraying Mitch, husband to Mallory (Brooklyn Decker) and son-in-law to Grace (Fonda). He’s an obgyn and father of two who is always on call and trying to do the best he can juggling husband, father and doctor duties.

Stults is coming off of a one-season run on Fox’s Enlisted. Yahoo Screen was in talks to pick the series up for a second season, but those negotiations failed to yield a deal.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    No one will watch “The Odd Couple”..CBS please,come back with your decision and pick up “How I Met Your Dad” it will be a great success!

    What about Cuz-Bros?

  3. Eric says:

    Whatever happened to the talks of Yahoo bringing back Enlisted?

    • Sahil says:

      Nothing happened, I guess.

    • c-mo says:

      I think they’re still talking. I did a Yahoo survey a week or so ago about Yahoo Screen and which shows I consider “favorites”, one of my options was Community and another was Enlisted…I of course picked Enlisted in hopes that any and all support of the show would mean that they would pick it up…keeping my fingers crossed!

    • Sarah Tondello says:

      It’s officially not coming back now.

  4. MattArmando says:

    GRACE AND FRANKIE has such a kick-ass cast. This’ll be interesting.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Glad Geoff will be in two shows. Hope Yahoo will pickup Enlisted.

  6. Hiring workers rather than about the most important things you can acquire
    while using the money one could have held in the future.
    The tendency for grass to “rhizome” itself under the gardens and then the general root
    expansion for this always-voracious grasses aand imperialistic lawns is
    a very common problem often requiring substantial hand work
    and labor to retain a good, separate edge. Do you want water
    features like a fountain orr a pond too accent the landscape.

    Who would’ve thought Geoff Stults and that uni-brow kid who went on to do Teen Wolf would be the most successful people to come out of 7th Heaven. Even Jessica Biel’s film “career” is nothing nowadays.

    • lechatnoir says:

      Jessica has Justyn’s millions but I am willing to bet she’ll get her own TV gig. The girl is frigging sexy but can’t act for toffee. And Jeff Stults’s is a monotone cookie cutter chap. Nobody’s going to remember him .

  8. Jon says:

    Even adding Geoff Stults will not make me watch this version of the Odd Couple.
