Ken Marino to Guest Star on ‘Fresh Off the Boat’

Comedic actor will appear during episode of ABC sitcom’s sophomore season

“Fresh Off the Boat” has cast Ken Marino for a guest spot on an upcoming episode of the ABC sitcom’s second season.

The series, set in 1995, revolves around 11-year-old, hip-hop-loving Eddie Huang (Hudson Yang) whose family has just moved from Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown to suburban Orlando, Florida, so that the family patriarch Louis (Randall Park) can follow his American dream of opening a Western-themed restaurant.

Marino will play Gus, the tanned, well-groomed co-host of local morning news show, “Good Morning, Orlando!” He invites Louis (Park) onto the program after he delights him with his array of celebrity impressions at the restaurant.

ABC renewed the sitcom for a second season ahead of its Upfront presentation in May, along with fellow freshman comedies “Black-ish” and “Galavant.”

Marino is best known for his roles on “Veronica Mars,” “Children’s Hospital” and NBC’s short-lived sitcom “Marry Me.” He is represented by Paradigm and Principato-Young.
