Royal Pains Scoop: Ed Asner Cast as Gramps

Last season, Royal Pains introduced Hank and Evan’s dad Eddie, played by Henry Winkler. Now the USA Network hit’s upcoming third season will be going back another generation: Veteran actor Ed Asner tapped for a two-episode arc as Ted Roth, Hank and Evan’s grandfather and Eddie’s dad.

Asner, who recently starred on CMT’s first sitcom Working Class, will next be seen in the HBO movie Too Big to Fail.

Pains‘ third season kicks off June 29 (9/8c).
