Seemingly since his film career is in worse shape than a 90-year-old with Swine Flu, Chris Kattan has accepted a deal to return to Television.
The â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€ alumni â€“ who went on to star in such films as â€œA Night at the Roxburyâ€, â€œSantaâ€™s Slayâ€ and â€œWanted : Undead or Aliveâ€ â€“ will join bellybutton-less Patricia Heaton on the new ABC Comedy â€œThe Middleâ€, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Kattan, who guest-starred in the pilot, will play Bob, a good friend of fellow car salesman Frankie Heck (Heaton).
The WBTV-produced “Middle” is a single-camera comedy about a middle-class Midwestern family seen through the eyes of the mother. It is slated to premiere Sept. 30, airing in the 8:30 p.m. Wednesday slot.
