"Honey, I shrunk the Cul-de-Sac Crew!" When Cougar Town returns to TBS on Jan. 7 Bob Clendenin, who plays hangdog outsider neighbor Tom, will be spending more time with the gang.
There haven't been a lot of comedy westerns save Blazing Saddles, Three Amigos and Wild Wild West, none of which were released in the new millennium. Thankfully, Hulu breathed new life into the genre with its original series Quick Draw, an improvised comedy from 10 Items or Less' John Lehrand Nancy Hower.
Quick Draw follows Sheriff John Henry Hoyle (Lehr), a bumbling Harvard grad who is so confident in his intellectual superiority he even boasts about graduating 327th in his class. Now living in Great Bend, Kansas, Hoyle attempts to introduce forensics to the local rubes, who include the dim-witted Deputy Eli (newcomer Nick Brown), the brazen brothel owner Honey (The Sopranos' Allison Dunbar) and the mopey Undertaker Vernon Shank (Cougar Town's Bob Clendenin).
Tom (Bob Clendenin) has always been the saddest member of the Cul-de-Sac Crew (and we use the term "member" loosely). But it seems as though things are picking up for the clingy neighbor!
Ali Wentworth has been tapped to play a love interest for Tom when Cougar Town returns on TBS in 2013, TV Line reports.
