COUGAR TOWN Director Michael McDonald to Do Double Duty

Michael McDonald

COUGAR TOWN director Michael McDonald will be stepping in front of the camera. TV Line reports that he will recur on the ABC comedy as the pretentious owner of a wine bar.

Jules and friends will begin visiting the bar, which show creator Bill Lawrence described as “snooty,” later this season. Because it is only a block away from Grayson’s bar, there will be some less than friendly competition between the two proprietors. Come on, though. This is Cougar Town. There’s always room for more wine.

McDonald starred in the FOX sketch series MADtv and has appeared in shows like Pushing Daisies, Reaper, and Scrubs. He has directed eleven episodes of Cougar Town so far.

Cougar Town, which was just renewed for a third season, airs on ABC Wednesdays at 9:30pm eastern/8:30pm central.
