Lombardo Boyar has landed a new television role…
The 43-year-old Latino actor has been cast as a series regular opposite Rob Riggle in ABC’s multi-camera, single-dad comedy pilot written by Dannah Phirman & Danielle Schneider, creators of Hulu’s Hotwives franchise, and executive produced by Trophy Wife creators Sarah Haskins & Emily Halpern.
The untitled comedy project centers on Josh Keeler (Riggle), an intellectual but emotionally challenged single dad who moves to Queens with his two young daughters and forms an unlikely family with the other residents in their apartment building.
Boyar will play Elias, a friendly yet macho tenant who also serves as the building’s handyman.
Boyar played Edgar Navarro on Murder in the First and recently guest-starred in Man With a Plan.
