Dr. Ken has admitted Rhys Darby for what sounds like an incendiary guest stint.
The Flight of the Conchords alum is set to play Charles Evans, the charming, rakish, eccentric New Zealander CEO of Welltopia. In an effort to give the place more of a huggier, warmer family atmosphere, Charles reveals to Ken (Ken Jeong) that he’s considering letting Pat (Dave Foley) go.
Dr. Ken airs Fridays at 8:30/7:30c on ABC. Darby’s episode will air in March.
