It's hard not to look up to Brad Garrett. Next month, the 6'8½" former Everybody Loves Raymond star joins CBS's The Crazy Ones in the recurring role of Gordon Lewis, the original partner of Simon Roberts (Robin Williams) in the ad agency — and the height jokes come quickly.
"In their first scene together, Robin says it's like being in the shade of Mount Kilimanjaro," says executive producer Jason Winer, who describes Lewis as "gay, with a dry wit and comedically cranky."
Gordon and Simon's first meeting is a memory that can't be unseen, says Winer. "It involves Robin's character being wasted, in his tightie-whities, somewhere in the snow on a very cold night in Chicago." If nothing else, it should make for a few big laughs.
