Weber — who most recently played Principal Gary Bolan on 13 Reasons Why and Mayor Douglas Hamilton in NCIS: New Orleans — is briefly coming aboard as Patrick, the newly divorced brother of Adam (William Fichtner), the boyfriend of Bonnie (Allison Janney). Patrick causes a commotion when he takes an interest in Christy (Anna Faris).
Weber’s episode is scheduled to air at the end of November.
Mom returns to CBS at 9 p.m. on Nov. 2.
