Lone Star may have been the first casualty of last year’s fall season and Georgetown may not have been picked up for this season, but that hasn’t stopped James Wolk from remaining rather busy lately. Following news that he’ll be appearing on the second season of Showtime’s Shameless, it appears that Wolk is ready for a Happy Ending or two.
TV Line is reporting that Wolk will be playing Max’s (former high school) boyfriend that gets close to him again on multiple episodes of Happy Endings. No word on when his first episode will air, but this is a good sign for the show, as none of the single members of the cast (Max, Penny, Dave, Alex) have had a recurring significant other, so this is a welcome bit of world building.
Aside from his previously mentioned credits (and future credits), Wolk has appeared in As the World Turns and the Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie Front of the Class, as well as movies You Again and The Spiral Project. He’s currently filming For a Good Time, Call…, a comedy about two women that start a phone sex line starring Seth Rogen and Justin Long.
Happy Endings airs Wednesdays at 9:30 on ABC.
Are you welcoming the news of a new boyfriend for Max? How do you think Wolk will handle comedy?
