[via press release from TBS]

Roseanne�s Laurie Metcalf and Johnny Galecki, Scrubs� Neil Flynn and Eureka�s Colin Ferguson Guest Star on TBS�s New Original Comedy Series MY BOYS

Jordana Spiro Heads Ensemble Cast That Includes Jim Gaffigan, Kyle Howard, Reid Scott, Michael Bunin, Jamie Kaler and Kellee Stewart

TBS�s new original comedy series MY BOYS is set to welcome four special guest stars on upcoming episodes: Laurie Metcalf and Johnny Galecki, both of whom co-starred in the long-running comedy hit Roseanne; Neil Flynn, who plays the notorious janitor on Scrubs; and Colin Ferguson, who stars in the new series Eureka. Galecki will first appear in the episode �Clubhouse Poison,� set to air Tuesday, Dec. 12, and will be joined by Ferguson in the episode �One for the Team,� airing Tuesday, Dec. 26. Metcalf, who had to split her time between the MY BOYS and Desperate Housewives sets during filming, and Flynn will both appear in the episode �When Heroes Fall from Grace,� airing Tuesday, Jan. 2. Legendary Chicago Cubs stadium Wrigley Field and Jeannie Noth Gaffigan, Jim Gaffigan�s real life wife, also make special appearances on Jan. 16 when the cast heads to Chicago for the season finale.

MY BOYS, which airs on TBS Tuesdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), stars Jordana Spiro (JAG, Must Love Dogs) as PJ, an unabashed, sports-loving girl whose love life can sometimes be a challenge given that most of her friends are guys. The series co-stars Jim Gaffigan (That �70s Show, Ed), Kyle Howard (Related, Orange County), Reid Scott (American Dreams), Michael Bunin (Scrubs), Jamie Kaler (The Family Stone) and Kellee Stewart (Guess Who?).

In �Clubhouse Poison� (Dec. 12) and �One for the Team,� (Dec. 26) Galecki, who is currently appearing on Broadway in The Little Dog Laughed, plays Trouty, a friend of Kenny who wins the gang�s favor by being able to get just about any item on a moment�s notice. Trouty�s personality, however, leaves a lot to be desired. Joining Galecki in �One for the Team� is Ferguson as Steve, the owner of a hot new nightspot the gang gets into thanks to his friendship with Trouty.

In �When Heroes Fall from Grace,� (Jan. 2) Metcalf will play PJ�s rather flighty Aunt Phyllis, who comes for a visit and winds up getting a little closer to one of PJ�s guy friends than PJ would like. At the time of filming, Metcalf was also shooting her now-famous guest appearance on the hit show Desperate Housewives and had to run back and forth between the two sets, one minute playing a wild and crazy aunt, the next playing a corpse. �When Heroes Fall from Grace� will also feature Flynn as a former Major League pitcher who relishes the attention (plus free drinks and food) he receives from his adoring fans.

In �Myths� (Jan. 16) PJ pulls some strings and gets the gang in to Wrigley Field. And Andy�s (Gaffigan) wife Meredith is played by his real life wife, Jeannie Noth Gaffigan.

MY BOYS is produced by Pariah and Two Out Rally Productions, Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television, with Betsy Thomas (Run of the House), Jamie Tarses and Gavin Polone (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Gilmore Girls) serving as executive producers.
