'Key & Peele' star to guest on 'The Middle'
Keegan-Michael Key is going to be the Heck family’s savior.
At least, he’s going to try when the comedian guest stars on an upcoming episode of The Middle.
EW has learned exclusively that star — best known as being one half of comedy duo Key and Peele, alongside Jordan Peele — will play Reverend Deveaux, a charismatic preacher visiting the Hecks’ church through a minister exchange program. In the episode, Deveaux, the former spiritual adviser to the Cleveland Browns, will offer his counseling services to the Heck family, as he “knows a group in crisis when he sees one,” according to a casting description.
The episode was recently filmed but does not yet have an airdate.
This marks one of many guest appearances the MADtv alum, who stars in a Comedy Central sketch-comedy show along Peele, has booked recently. His other appearances have included How I Met Your Mother, The League, and Wilfred.
New episodes of The Middle return Wednesday on ABC.
