'Sex and the City' alum John Corbett to co-star in Denis Leary's FX rock comedy pilot

John Corbett is set to rock out with Denis Leary on the small screen.

EW has confirmed that the Sex and the City actor will co-star  alongside Leary in FX’s comedy pilot Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, which is written and produced by the Rescue Me alum.

Leary plays Johnny Rock, an aging rocker who ruined his dreams of being rich and famous as the lead singer of New York’s legendary early 1990s band The Heathens. Twenty-five years after breaking the band up on the same day their first and only record was released, Johnny, now a broke bartender, tries to get everyone back together, including Flash (Corbett), the much-acclaimed former lead guitarist of The Heathens who helped originally form the band.

Corbett returns to FX after starring in the short-lived poker comedy Lucky. His other TV credits include United States of Tara and a role as another aging rocker on NBC’s Parenthood. 

John Corbett to reprise role on 'Parenthood'

For Parenthood‘s Sarah Braverman (Lauren Graham), the ghosts of exes’ past will continue to reappear with the return of John Corbett. TV Guide reports that Corbett is slated to reprise his role as Seth Holt, Sarah’s ex-husband and Amber (Mae Whitman) and Drew (Miles Heizer)’s father, in an upcoming episode of the NBC dramedy. According to TV Guide, he will appear on episode 13, where Amber unexpectedly visits the restaurant in which he works and causes a scene with a fellow customer. Amber has been going through a tough time recently as her fiancé, Iraq War vet Ryan (Matt Lauria) was arrested for starting a fight with her colleague.

The last time audiences saw Seth was back in season 3, when he turned his life around and reconnected with Sarah and his children. A longtime drug addict and alcoholic, Seth, a musician, spent most of Amber and Drew’s childhood out of the picture as Sarah raised the kids largely on her own. Most recently, he left Berkeley, where the series is set, to start a new life in Tahoe, away from music and drugs.
