Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Mark Valley

Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce has found the cure for what ails Abby: a strong dose of Mark Valley, to be administered semi-regularly throughout Season 2.

The Bravo dramedy has cast the Boston Legal alum in the recurring role of “confident and charming TV personality” Dr. Harris, who’ll pursue Lisa Edelstein’s character in the upcoming season, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Valley’s TV credits include Body of ProofFringe, CSI, Human Target and Days of Our Lives.

In other casting news, Baby Daddy‘s Jean-Luc Bilodeau will guest-star in a Season 2 episode as Adam, a handsome, young dude Alanna Ubach’s Jo meets on Tinder.

Also: Joanna Vannicola (Being Erica) will recur as Jonathan, an androgynous power wedding planner (but for whom?); Henderson Wade (Criminal Minds) will recur as Walt, Max and Ford’s manny who helps Abby in a pinch; and Susan Hogan (Night Heat, Battlestar Galactica) will guest-star as Carol, mother of Delia’s wealthy hook-up, Gordon.

Bilodeau and Hogan join previously announced Season 2 guest star Retta (Parks and Recreation), who’ll show up as a rival editor at Abby’s new job.

The series is currently in production on Season 2.

    Can´t wait. I love Abby with her young lover Will but Lisa Edelstein and Mark Valley are going to set the screens on fire.

  2. Steven says:

    I feel like whenever they add Mark Valley to an established show it gets cancelled. Body of Proof and Harry’s Law.

    • Henry says:

      I hate the phrase show killer and I actually like Mark Valley but as soon as we saw him in Crisis we knew it was doomed. He even managed to get csi cancelled after 17 years or whatever when he got a recurring role!

    • Gavin says:

      Yes! He was also recurring on csi last season and that show was cancelled too. He is a show killer!

    • ChrisGa says:

      My thoughts exactly, despite the fact that I think he’s a very good actor. LOVE Bilodeau too although I wish he’d been brought on as a young dude for Max. ;)

    not sure this series will survive more than 2season or will become a veritable phenomenon….

  4. keey says:

    Great. He is hot and a good actor. I love the addition

  5. Lorna says:

    This is my favorite show. I love Abby McCarthy and this guy looks so great for her. I really hope they get rid of Phoebe this season. Boring character.

  6. Riley says:

    How to set the Bravo screen on fire when Mark Valley acts opposite Lisa Edelstein!
    This is going to be adult fun. So there for that.

  7. John says:

    Given that they cast Will Christie as a 29 year old, maybe Jean-Luc will play a WWII veteran and Mark Valley will be a teenager.

    Love the show but can’t watch Alana (Jo) character. What happened to Jeannine G. so much more interesting. New to recast this role fast before you lose a lot of viewers! The rest of the casting is actually terrific.
