Robert Michael Morris and Mel Rodriguez Cast On FOX’s RUNNING WILDE


Robert Michael Morris and Mel Rodriguez have joined the cast of the new FOX comedy series RUNNING WILDE. They will join the previously announced David Cross who will appear in a recurring role.

Morris will portray Mr. Lunt, Steven Wilde’s (Arnett) fiercely protective former “manny”-turned-secretary, and Rodriguez will play Migo, Steve’s driver and life-long friend who is not above taking advantage of his employer’s fiscal irresponsibility. Cross will recur as Andy, an “eco-terrorist” who has been living in the Amazon rainforest with his girlfriend, Emmy Kadubic (Keri Russell), and will serve as a romantic foil to Emmy’s first love: Steve. Cross is set to appear in seven of the first 13 episodes of the season.

Running Wilde is the new romantic comedy series centering on a spoiled, filthy rich playboy who desperately tries to win the heart of his humanitarian childhood sweetheart by helping raise her 12-year-old daughter. The series stars Will Arnett, Keri Russell, Stefania Owen, Peter Serafinowicz, Robert Michael Morris and Mel Rodriguez.
The series premieres Tuesday, September 21 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Robert Michael Morris was previously seen in The Comeback, Brothers & Sisters, How I Met Your Mother, The Class, Arrested Development and Will & Grace.

Mel Rodriguez’s television work includes recurring roles on Big Love, FlashForward, The Middle and George Lopez.
