Ian Gomez is preaching new heights…
The 52-year-old Latino actor has been cast as a series regular role in CBS’ comedy pilot Living Biblically, from The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki, writer Patrick Walsh and Warner Bros. Television.
Based on A.J. Jacobs’ bestselling book The Year of Living Biblically, the project centers on a modern-day man at a crossroads in his life who decides to live according to the Bible.
Gomez will play Father Gene. A dryly funny priest at Chip’s (TBD) church, Father Gene is impressed by Chip’s determination, and they form an unlikely friendship when he helps him translate the rules of the Bible to a modern world.
Gomez is best known for his series-regular roles as Javier on Felicity and Andy on Cougar Town.
Gomez, who most recently recurred on the CW’s Supergirl, has guest-starred on The Real O’Neals, Angels from Hell and Drop Dead Diva.
