Superior Donuts calls up Cubs shortstop for guest role
The home opener for the Chicago Cubs is about to get some tasty cross-promotion on Superior Donuts.
In the episode scheduled to air on opening day, shortstop Addison Russell will stop by the donut shop to meet Arthur (Judd Hirsch), a Cubs superfan. Arthur’s trying to break the record for attending the most consecutive games on opening day, but he loses his connection for tickets so he’s left scrambling for the first time in 43 years.
Perhaps Russell can help? Naturally, the shortstop plays himself in the episode that will air April 9 on CBS.
Superior Donuts also stars Katey Sagal, Jermaine Fowler, David Koechner, Max Jobrani, and Diane Guerrero.
