When Showtime’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend moves to California on a whim, at least she won’t be alone.
The cast of the upcoming musical-comedy pilot was announced Tuesday, via a video on star Rachel Bloom’s YouTube page.
In addition to Bloom (Robot Chicken) — whose impulsive Rebecca gives up her successful life and job in Manhattan to look for love in California — the half-hour pilot will also feature four series regulars:
* Michael McDonald (MADtv) as Darryl, Rebecca’s new boss
* Broadway actress Donna Lynne Champlin (Billy Elliot) as Paula, a suspicious co-worker at Rebecca’s New York law firm
* Tony Award nominee Santino Fontana (Cinderella, also the voice of Frozen‘s Hans) as Greg, Rebecca’s first friend on the West Coast
* Broadway actor Vincent Rodriguez III (Here Lies Love) as Josh, Rebecca’s childhood boyfriend who reappears in her life years later
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will begin filming in Los Angeles in October.
