* 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
