The USA Network comedy has tapped two of my favorite actors — Heroes‘ Greg Grunberg and Weeds‘ Lindsay Sloane — to guest star in an upcoming episode that pokes fun at the reality dating genre.
Sloane will play Melinda, the coveted single gal on Missed Connections, a Bachelorette-esque relationship show where eligible men from her past compete to win her affections.
Grunberg, meanwhile, co-stars as Dimitri, the show’s ratings-obsessed executive producer who Shawn (James Roday) believes may be the culprit behind an attack on one of the contestants.
And as first scooped in this week’s Ask Ausiello, WWE Superstar Mike ‘The Miz’ Mizanin rounds out the guest cast as Mario, a hotheaded, ‘bros before hoes’-type contestant.
The episode is slated to air midway through the show’s long-awaited sixth season, which kicks off in October.
