Martin Sheen joins Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin's new Netflix comedy

A very promising thing just got even more promising: Martin Sheen has signed on to play Jane Fonda’s husband in the upcoming Netflix comedy Grace and Frankie, EW has confirmed.

The half-hour comedy centers on two rivals—Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin)—who find common ground after they discover that their respective husbands have fallen in love with each other and plan to marry.
