Confession time: I might break down and watch an episode of ‘Til Death next month. Keep reading and you’ll see why.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Nathan Lane has been tapped to play Brad Garrett’s gay brother during November sweeps.

C’mon, admit it — that’s pretty genius.

In the episode, airing Nov. 18, Garrett’s Eddie gets a visit from his bro, who’s in a bit of a funk because his life partner of many years has dumped him. The sibs end up bonding over their mutual dependence on their spouses.

Another confession: If this episode is as funny as I hope it is, I might watch another. Key word there being might. Just putting that out there now.
