Kevin James makes his return to CBS this fall in the new family comedy Kevin Can Wait, but another famous CBS comedic actor is coming back to the network as well — at least temporarily.
Ray Romano will guest-star on Kevin Can Wait, EW has learned. The Everybody Loves Raymond alum and Emmy winner will play a friendly, pushy car salesman named Vic Margolis. Kevin’s son (James DiGiacomo) has made a new best friend whose father is Vic, and Vic is overeager to sell Kevin an overpriced car.
Romano and James have traded punchlines many times before, of course: Romano appeared in several episodes of James’ previous CBS comedy, King of Queens, while James popped up as two different characters on Romano’s Raymond. The pair also co-headlined stand-up shows in Las Vegas.
Romano, whose appearance on Kevin Can Wait will air sometime this fall, starred earlier this year in the short-lived HBO drama Vinyl. Other recent TV credits include Parenthood and Maron.
Kevin Can Wait — which stars James as a freshly retired cop who finds that managing his home life with his wife and three kids is more difficult than he imagined — premiered Monday.
