Mistresses Casts Jerry O'Connell for Hilarious (and Sexy?) Season 4 Arc

Motherhood is not going to cool down the piping-hot messiness of Mistresses Karen Kim.

ABC’s summer sudser has cast TV vet Jerry O’Connell (We Are Men) as the manny for Yunjin Kim’s beautifully disastrous doctor, TVLine has learned exclusively.

While O’Connell’s character Robert — who moonlights as an actor — will initially be in charge of changing diapers and locating lost binkies, we hear there’s a possibility that inappropriate love (aka the only kind we really want to see on Mistresses) could eventually follow.

O’Connell’s guest-starring arc — which we hear will result in some hilarious moments — is slated to last at least four episodes, but the actor will also be back direct some installments later in the season.

No word on whether O’Connell’s introduction means that Karen’s romance with baby daddy Alec (Ed Quinn) — last seen mourning the death of his wife (and Karen’s “thruple” participant) Vivian — is kaput.

Are you hoping Karen will violate the employer-employee relationship? Does O’Connell seem like a good fit for the Mistresses universe? Sound off below!

    I’m semi glad they are skipping pregnant Karen. I mean Karen is mostbentertaining when she goes around a bit yet this is quite the time jump we are facing. Didn’t expect that after that cliffhanger.

    Have you heard anything about Alyssa Milano coming back because they’re moving production back to LA?

    I must admit I am startled every time I see the headline, “”(Blank)” casts Jerry O’Connell” I can’t remember anything I’ve seen him in since “Sliders” where I thought, “Wow, he really made this a better show”

    Jerry O’Connell, i don’t see sexy, i wonder how he’ll fit in with the sexy cast. I really don’t see him in that light.
    I hope I will like the role he plays.
    I am not a big fan.
