Cary Elwes, who you may remember as Westley in the seminal '80s film The Princess Bride, guest stars on Life in Pieces Thursday in another swoon-worthy role — this time as suave creative writing teacher Sinclair Wilde. As you see in the clip, he's quite fond of Joan (Dianne Wiest) — er, Joan's work that is — which gets Joan a bit flustered and her husband John (James Brolin) a little jealous.

What to stream now

Convinced that Mr. Smarty Pants is trying to move in on his girl, John gears up to fight for his lady — and the way he goes about it is nothing short of hilarious.

(Full disclosure: is owned by CBS.)
