I’ve been slacking on taping TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland, but that’s about to change: Tim Conway will play a suitor who goes toe-to-toe with Max (Carl Reiner) to win the heart of Elka (Betty White) in the July 28 episode “It’s Not That Complicated.” (Pause as we miss Harvey Korman.)
The guest stars continue to line up for this show: The Aug. 4 episode will feature Ugly Betty‘s Justin, Mark Indelicato, as Zack, “a drama nerd and fan of Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick) who invites his hero to give some notes on his school’s production of Romeo & Juliet.” LOVE IT. Boston Legal‘s Clarence, Gary Anthony Williams, will also guest as Coach Taylor, who “trains and treats the drama team like a football team, much to Zack’s dismay.” (Sounds cliché, but could still be funny.)
Dave Foley (NewsRadio, The Kids in the Hall) has been added to the cast of the Aug. 11 episode, which will also feature Joe Jonas (as Valerie Bertinelli’s character’s son). Foley will play Dr. Robert Moore, the “head of a local medical foundation who comes to see Victoria (Malick) when she fakes a deadly disease to gain sympathy and votes for her Emmy nomination.” I hope Dr. Moore is sarcastic, because Foley facing off with Malick = delicious.
Have you stuck with Hot in Cleveland since its premiere? If not, are these episode descriptions enough to warrant your return?
