Exclusive: Wilmer Valderrama to Play Sexy New Age Guru on Suburgatory
Wilmer Valderrama is coming to Suburgatory to provide Chatswin's soccer moms with some spiritual -- and sexual -- healing.
The 31-year-old actor has signed to guest-star on the ABC comedy as Yoni, the town's answer to both the Dalai Lama and Richard Gere, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
"He is highly spiritual, with a great head of hair. Self-trained in the art of Reiki, Yoni stands alone as Chatswin's new age guru, making him extremely popular with moms," series creator Emily Kapnek says. "He's also great in bed." (Guess we should have expected that based on his name!)

Valderrama's episode will air early next year. The actor co-stars in NBC's upcoming midseason drama Awake, about a police detective (Jason Isaacs) who is involved in a traumatic car accident and wakes up in two fractured realities. Most recently, he guest-starred in the mid-season finale of Royal Pains as a hallucinating art enthusiast who may or may not be dead when the series resumes next year. Valderrama also provides the voice for the title character of Disney's animated series Handy Manny.
ABC picked up a full season of Suburgatory in October, and last week, promoted Ana Gasteyer to a series regular.
