Out actor Sean Hayes will return to
network television this fall.
“I am excited to confirm &
announce that I am joining the cast of @TheMillersCBS on @CBS this
fall,” Hayes tweeted to his more than 229,000 followers on Tuesday.
According to Variety,
Hayes will play Kip Withers, Carol Miller's (played by Margo
Martindale) new best friend.
Series creator Greg Garcia said he was
excited about the addition.
“After years of being a fan and
hearing from others how wonderful he is to work with, I couldn't be
more excited about Sean Hayes joining The Millers,” Garcia
said. “The thought of he and Margo Martindale as BFF's makes me
smile every time I think about it. We're only just getting started,
and writing this season's stories has been a blast.”
Hayes' character will be introduced
during the comedy's October 30 second season premiere.
Hayes is best known for playing Jack
McFarland for eight seasons on the hit NBC sitcom Will
& Grace. He starred opposite Linda Lavin in the
short-lived NBC comedy Sean Saves the World.
