Ian Gomez could soon be appearing on The Eye Network…
The 49-year-old half-Puerto Rican actor has been cast in CBS’ multi-camera odd-couple-esque comedy pilot Cuz-Bros.
Toplined by Geoff Stults and Parker Young of Fox’s Enlisted, the projectcenters on Nick (Stults), a successful, suave ladies man working as a sportscaster for a local Los Angeles TV station. His perfect life gets turned on its head when his hot-mess-of-a-cousin Barry (Young) needs a place to stay.
Gomez will portray Phil, Nick’s boss at the TV station.
He is being cast as a guest star as he is in second position to Cougar Town, the way Stults and Young are to Enlisted, making Cuz-Bros a rare pilot where most of the primary cast are formally tied to other shows.
Cougar Town‘s fifth season ended its run several weeks ago, but TBS has yet to make a decision on a renewal.
Cuz-Bros was written by David Caspe and Erik Sommers.
