Sean Saves the World has had an interesting ride so far. Funny, but has not quite caught on the way the network had suspected. Well, you know what a network does when that happens and they need a quick ratings boost to ensure another season? They usually bring in some big name talent to help boost the show. In this case, we have just found out that Guy Pearce joins Sean Saves the World on NBC just in time to potentially throw it a life-saver.
TV Line has the details, but it mostly just boils down to what we already told you. Guy Pearce will be coming on board as Sean’s new love interest. I can assure you, it is a brilliant move on NBC’s part to snag a few more viewers. Guy Pearce is a remarkable actor (rewatch Memento the hundredth time for concrete proof of this), and just his presence on this show could definitely help boost its ratings and potentially lock it in at NBC for at least another season.
As of right now, we hear that Guy Pearce only joins Sean Saves the World for one episode, but you never know how it could play out. They have not yet shot the episode, and we will give you more details as they emerge.
