Aimee Garcia is a total impastor…
The 35-year-old Mexican American and Puerto Rican actress and Dexter alum has been cast opposite Mircea Monroe and Michael Rosenbaum in TV Land’s single-camera dark comedy Impastor.
Written by Christopher Vane and directed by Robert Greenberg, the story centers on Buddy (Rosenbaum), a lowlife on the run from his debts who hides away in a small town by conning its residents into thinking he’s their new gay pastor.
Garcia will portray Buddy’s put-upon girlfriend LeeAnne. Her character is described as a bartender in San Francisco who is used to Buddy leading a chaotic, trouble-jammed lifestyle. A little bored with all the constant upheaval in his life, she dismisses his latest tale of danger and drama. But after Buddy disappears, and apparent suicide, LeeAnne has a new set of problems: dealing with her snarky mother, dealing with the cops, dealing with a funeral director, and (most complicated of all) dealing with Buddy’s criminal creditors on top of the guilt of “abandoning” him.
Monroe plays Alexa Cummings, the sexy head trustee of Loomis Lutheran Church, who’s instantly attracted to the new pastor in town, Buddy. Alexa’s sophistication hides a mysterious past.
Garcia recently appeared in MGM’s RoboCop reboot.
