Patton Oswalt plays Rob Ford-esque mayor on 'Battle Creek': See a clip

Posted on

Monty Brinton/CBS

When Patton Oswalt isn’t killing it with a mic or tweeting treatises, he’s probably off filming another good guest-starring role on a TV show that you watch. (See: Justified, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Brooklyn Nine-NineDrunk History, Modern Family, Parks and RecreationTwo and a Half Men. We can do this all day…)

And this Sunday at 10 p.m., he ‘ll go for broke on CBS’s quirky small-town crime drama Battle Creek, playing Mayor Scooter Hardy. Two things you need to know: Mayor Hardy is in danger of being assassinated. And he can’t quite lay off the crack pipe.

Check out this exclusive clip, in which Russ (Dean Winters) and Milt (Josh Duhamel) rush in to save the Rob Ford-esque mayor, only to find him in party mode. And to think, Russ actually voted for this guy.
