Justin Kirk You're the Worst

TVLine Items: You're the Worst's New Couple, HBO's Hero Trailer and More

Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer and avoid You’re the Worst‘s Gretchen at all costs.

That’s a lesson that Justin Kirk (Tyrant) and Tara Summers (Ringer) will learn when they guest-star on Season 2 of the FXX comedy this fall.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kirk and Summers will play Rob and Lexi, a couple whose lives are thrown into disarray after meeting Gretchen at the local coffee shop.

They join a bevy of Season 2 guest stars, including Andy Buckley (The Office), Mageina Tovah (Scandal) and Collette Wolfe (Cougar Town). You’re the Worst returns in September.

    I could totally see Justin Kirk and Tara Summers as hapless victims of Gretchen and Jimmy’s delicious toxicity, or as a couple who turn out to be equally damaged and terrible on the inside. They’ll fit right in on the show. Very nice casting.
