Actor Chris Klein to Pay Visit to ‘Raising Hope’

Over the last few weeks some interesting casting announcements have been made for the FOX sitcom Raising Hope, including Wilmer Valderrama and Melanie Griffith (and her mom film legend Tippi Hedren) all making upcoming guest appearances.

Now news comes from The Hollywood Reporter that actor Chris Klein, best known for his role in the ‘American Pie’ film franchise, will guest star in the popular FOX comedy as Brad, a local celebrity realtor whom Burt (Garret Dillahunt) and Virginia (Martha Plimpton) reveal to Jimmy (Lucas Neff) is an “almost” long-lost family member. As it stands right now, Klein is only scheduled to appear in one episode.

Klein is just coming off a recurring role on the FX series ‘Wilfred’ as well as a recent guest stint on ‘Franklin & Bash’. His other film roles include ‘Election’, ‘Here on Earth’, ‘We Were Soldiers’, ‘American Dreamz’ and ‘Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li’. He also appeared in the Hallmark Hall of Fame telefilm ‘The Valley of Light’.

‘Raising Hope’ will be back for its third season on FOX starting on Tuesday, October 2 at 8/7c.
