Young and Hungry season 5: Andy Buckley cast as Josh's dad

As if Josh didn’t have enough relationship problems on Young & Hungry, now he’ll be adding father-son drama to the mix.

EW has exclusively learned that Andy Buckley (The Office and Odd Mom Out) has been cast to play Matt, Josh’s estranged father. The two have a contentious relationship — they don’t know each other well, and Matt wants to try to patch things up. Josh (Jonathan Sadowski) isn’t sure that’s something he wants… or even if he wants to meet him.

Based on how much Gabi (Emily Osment), Elliot (Rex Lee), and Yolanda (Kym Whitley) interfere in his life, we imagine their meeting is imminent.

Buckley will be in at least two episodes when the Freeform show returns in 2017 for its fifth season.
