Jason Lee to join “Up All Night” cast

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: “My Name is Earl” alumnus and “Memphis Beat” actor Jason Lee will play opposite Maya Rudolph on NBC’s brand new prime time comedy, “Up All Night.” Rudolph’s character Ava is a principal member of the cast, the high-maintenance boss to Christina Applegate’s harried new mom.

Entertainment Weekly had the exclusive, and described Lee’s character as “a sweet, single dad who is clean cut and attractive.” It was not immediately known how long Lee’s character will play on the show, but he is expected to surface some time in November.

“Up All Night” debuted to strong ratings and favorable reviews. The show (created by “Saturday Night Live” and “MADtv” writer Emily Spivey) follows new parents Reagan (Christina Applegate) and Chris (Will Arnett) as they give up their partying ways and learn to care for infant daughter, Amy. The arrival of new cast members and the queuing up of sub-plots is to be expected. Once infant Amy learns to sleep through the night and outgrows other comedy-producing newborn antics, the show will need other characters of interest and plot devices to keep it afloat.
