About a Boy episode 9 “About a Kiss” airs Tuesday, April 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Episode Synopsis: About a Boy (NBC) episode 9 “About a Kiss” – Andy (Al Madrigal) and Laurie (guest star Annie Mumolo) host a game night and Will (David Walton) invites Sam (guest star Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights)), but things don’t go exactly as planned when she arrives. When his friend TJ (guest star Zach Cregger) asks Fiona (Minnie Driver) to join him for the festivities, Will goes to great lengths to discourage any sparks from flying. Meanwhile, Marcus (Benjamin Stockham) is uneasy when he discovers the mother of an older mean girl at school will be babysitting him. Keith Powell also guest stars.

Based on the best-selling Nick Hornby (“High Fidelity,” “An Education”) novel, writer Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights,” “Parenthood”) and director Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Revolution”) present a different kind of coming-of-age story. Will Freeman (David Walton, “Bent,” “Perfect Couples”) lives a charmed existence as the ultimate man-child. After writing a hit song, he was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes. He’s single, unemployed and loving it.

So imagine his surprise when Fiona (Minnie Driver, “Good Will Hunting,” “Barney’s Version”), a needy single mom and her oddly charming 11-year-old son, Marcus (Benjamin Stockham, “1600 Penn”), move in next door and disrupt his perfect world. When Marcus begins dropping by his home unannounced, Will’s not so sure about being a kid’s new best friend, until, of course, Will discovers that women find single dads irresistible. That changes everything and a deal is struck: Marcus will pretend to be Will’s son and, in return, Marcus is allowed to chill at Will’s house. Before he realizes it, Will starts to enjoy the visits and even finds himself looking out for the kid. In fact, this newfound friendship may very well teach him a thing or two that he never imagined possible — about himself and caring for others.

Writer Jason Katims, director Jon Favreau, Tim Bevan (“Les Misérables,” “About a Boy”), Eric Fellner (“Les Misérables,” “About a Boy”), Liza Chasin (“Les Misérables,” “About a Boy”), Robert De Niro (“About a Boy,” “Meet the Parents”) and Jane Rosenthal (“About a Boy,” “Meet the Parents”) serve as executive producers. “About a Boy” is a production of Universal Television, Working Title Television, True Jack Productions and Tribeca Productions.
