James Roday is certainly not letting any moss gather beneath his feet. Barely out of Lassiter’s hair or Gus’ blue Toyota Yaris, 37-year old Roday recently landed a relationship comedy gig on CBS. His character’s name is Joel, a middle school guidance counselor who is married to Lindsay, a jet-setting executive. The couple’s disagreement in regards to the perfect time for having children catapults them onto a hilarious journey in couples counseling. The part of Lindsay has not been cast. Rich Sommer (Mad Men) will play Joel's best friend Seth from college.
The comedic actor has played fake psychic police consultant Shawn Spencer on USA’s ‘Psych’ for eight seasons. Roday's girlfriend and ‘Psych’ co-star Maggie Lawson also has a lead role in an upcoming CBS marriage comedy called ‘Save the Date.’ The season finale of ‘Psych’ airs March 26 on the USA network. Hopefully, this will not lead to any separation issues for poor Gus.
