This Is Us is giving Kate a new job, a new boss, and Jami Gertz.

The Still Standing actress, who got her start on Square Pegs, is guest-starring on Tuesday’s episode of the NBC dramedy. She’ll play Marin, who hires Kate (Chrissy Metz) for a job as an event coordinator.

The casting reunites the Less Than Zero vet, who recently starred in ABC comedy The Neighbors, with This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman, who also created The Neighbors. You can preview a Kate-Marin scene in the video below.

The This Is Us guest cast has featured Gerald McRaney, Jon Huertas, Katy Sagal, Brad Garrett, and Janet Montgomery. Plus, two True Blood vets will be appearing soon: Sam Trammell as Ben, former bandmate of Rebecca (Mandy Moore), and Denis O’Hare as Jessie, friend of William (Ron Cephas Jones).

EW spoke with series creator Dan Fogelman, as well as cast members Milo Ventimiglia, Chrissy Metz, and Ron Cephas Jones, about last week’s revelation-stuffed episode, “The Game Plan.” Click on their names for those interviews.

Moore, Ventimiglia, Metz, Sterling K. Brown, and Justin Hartley appeared a panel to talk all things This Is Us at EW PopFest on Sunday. Find out what they said here.
