Valderrama’s Next Role: Sexy New Age Guru

Goodbye city life! It looks like Wilmer Valderrama is headed to the ‘burbs…

The 31-year-old part-Colombian/part-Venezuelan actor has signed on to appear on ABC’s new comedy series, Suburgatory. He’ll guest-star as Yoni, a sexy New Age guru who helps provide a little spiritual—and sexual—healing to the town’s soccer moms.

In the episode set to air early next year, the former That ‘70s Show star is described as a cross between the Dalai Lama and Richard Gere’s character in American Gigolo.

“He is highly spiritual, with a great head of hair. Self-trained in the art of Reiki, Yoni stands alone as Chatswin’s new age guru, making him extremely popular with moms,” series creator Emily Kapnek tells “He’s also great in bed.”

Valderrama co-stars in NBC‘s upcoming midseason drama Awake, about a police detective who is involved in a traumatic car accident and awakens in two fractured realities. He recently guest-starred in the mid-season finale of Royal Pains as a hallucinating art enthusiast who may or may not be dead when the series resumes next year.

Valderrama also voices the title character of Disney’s animated series Handy Manny.
