COMMUNITY'S Yvette Nicole Brown to Join Matthew Perry in CBS' THE ODD COUPLE Reboot
Following a bout of recasting, CBS will welcome COMMUNITY's Yvette Nicole Brown to the cast of its planned 'ODD COUPLE' reboot, starring Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, Brown replaces Perry's former GO ON co-star, Sarah Baker, as Dani, Oscar's assistant. Baker departed the project earlier this year alongside Georgia King.
Dani is "someone who spends most of her workday on the phone, apologizing to assorted high and mighty people who have been offended by his latest splenetic rant. A woman of tact and polish -- two concepts that never enter into Oscar's bullheaded professional life -- Dani has one or two little issues that make her a less than ideal employee: She has no short-term memory and can't even remember to write down notes to herself."
THE ODD COUPLE stars Matthew Perry as endearing slob Oscar Madison and Thomas Lennon as uptight neat freak Felix Unger, two former college buddies who become unlikely roommates after the demise of their marriages. It's not long after Oscar lets Felix move in that Oscar fears he's made a monumental mistake. However, despite how exasperated they make each other, these mismatched friends agree they can help each other move on from their divorces and somehow make their crazy living arrangement work.
THE ODD COUPLE will premiere during the 2014-2015 season on the CBS Television Network.
