'How I Met Your Dad' casts 'Masters of Sex' actor

Masters of Sex star Nicholas D’Agosto is joining the gang over on How I Met Your Dad.

The actor has been cast as a series regular, playing the role of Frank in the CBS spinoff of How I Met Your Mother. He was last seen as Dr. Ethan Haas, the boyfriend of Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson, in the Showtime drama.

Greta Gerwig will provide the lead female POV in How I Met Your Dad, which will tell its story in a way similar to HIMYM, but feature new characters.

In other CBS comedy casting news, Wendell Pierce has been added to the Odd Couple reboot. He joins Matthew Perry, who will play Oscar opposite Thomas Lennon’s Felix. Pierce currently plays Harris Green on NBC’s The Michael J. Fox Show.

'Cougar Town': Brian Van Holt on directing tonight's mini 'Friends' reunion

Tuesday night’s episode of Cougar Town marks the first time actor Brian Van Holt stepped behind the camera to direct an episode of the comedy, accomplishing a goal he’d had since he started working on the series five seasons ago. And while he was thrilled to finally get the chance, the opportunity also came with a little added pressure — it was an episode that was set to guest star Courteney Cox’s former Friends castmate Matthew Perry.

“There was a lot involved and a lot of expectations,” Van Holt tells EW, “but that being said, it was amazing. I loved it.”

In the episode, airing at 10 p.m. ET, Perry guest stars as a man who has a fender bender with Cox’s Jules, and mayhem ensues when Jules takes a small fib a little too far. The episode finds a way to recapture the old chemistry between the two former co-stars, while also adding a little twist on the story. “I was so lucky to have Matthew in my episode because he made me look better. He brought so much to the table,” Van Holt said. “It was really an honor to direct Matthew Perry and Courteney.”

In fact, Van Holt says, as a Friends fan himself, it was somewhat “surreal at times” to see the two actors reunited. “I had my moments of, ‘Wow, This is Monica and Chandler at it again!’ They had such good chemistry,” he said. “I did get caught watching the monitors and forgetting to call cut because I could really let the camera roll on them forever. It was very special….It’s a big moment for two TV icons to come back together.” <

Cougar Town airs Tuesdays on TBS.

Matthew Perry to reunite with Courteney Cox on 'Cougar Town'

Did someone call for Mr. and Mrs. Bing? TBS just announced that former Friends stars Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox will be reuniting this winter when Perry guest-stars on Cougar Town.

Details about Perry’s role will be announced soon, but if he wants to fit in with the gang, we’re willing to bet he’s going to drink a little wine and make some inappropriate jokes. At least, that’s what we hope happens.

Cougar Town‘s fifth season premieres Tuesday, Jan. 7, at 10 p.m. on TBS.
