An old friend of Jake’s who is no fan of Annie is about to surface on Marry Me.

EW has learned exclusively that the NBC romantic comedy has tapped Jerry O’Connell to guest-star in an episode titled “Friend Me.” The Stand by Me/Sliders vet—whose recent TV credits include The League, Drunk History, and We Are Men—will play Daniel, a pal of Jake (Ken Marino) who did not care at all for Annie (Casey Wilson), which caused friction in their group of friends, a.k.a. The Boyz. Now that Daniel and The Boyz have reentered Jake’s life, Daniel is still very much interested in breaking up the newly engaged couple.

“Friend Me” is slated to air in January.
