at . Comments

An Emmy winner has been cast on The Millers.

CBS confirmed today via press release that Sean Hayes will join the sitcom as a series regular, coming on board as Kip Withers, the new best friend for Margo Martindale’s Carol.

Look for his presence to create some friction with Will Arnett's Nathan.

"After years of being a fan and hearing from others how wonderful he is to work with, I couldn’t be more excited about Sean Hayes joining The Millers,” said Greg Garcia, series creator and executive producer.  

“The thought of he and Margo Martindale as BFFs makes me smile every time I think about it. We’re only just getting started, and writing this season’s stories has been a blast."

Hayes most recently anchored Sean Saves the World on NBC and took home Emmy hardware for his role as Jack McFarland on Will & Grace.
