Grandfathered: Richie Sambora Set to Rock Season 1 Guest Role

He’ll play his part at John Stamos’ game. Will he give guest-starring a good name?

Apologies for the Bon Jovi lyric mangling, but we couldn’t resist, given that the band’s lead guitarist Richie Sambora has landed a guest-starring gig on Season 1 of Fox’s buzzy freshman sitcom Grandfathered.

Sambora, whose previous acting credits include spots on American Dreams and Still Standing, will play a bandleader performing at a birthday party for baby Edie, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Grandfathered follows Stamos’ bachelor restaurateur, whose life is upended when he unexpectedly discovers he’s not only a father — but also a grandpa. The cast also includes Josh Peck, Paget Brewster, Christina Milian, Kelly Jenrette and Ravi Patel.

Grandfathered airs Tuesdays at 8/7c, beginning Sept. 29.
