About a Boy season 2 episode 5 “About an Angry Ex” airs Tuesday, November 18th at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

Episode Synopsis: About a Boy Season 2 Episode 5 “About an Angry Ex” – Will (David Walton) is sued by an angry ex-girlfriend, Stacy (guest star Aimee Garcia), who is claiming she co-wrote his song “Runaway Sleigh.” Will looks to Fiona (Minnie Driver) for help in hopes that she can persuade Stacy to drop the lawsuit. However, things don’t go according to plan as Fiona begins to sympathize with Stacy. Meanwhile, Marcus (Benjamin Stockham) tries relentlessly to spark a run-in with bad girl Shea (guest star Izabela Vidovic), as he continues in his quest for her affection. Al Madrigal and Annie Mumolo also star.

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.
