Cheyenne Jackson, Ken Jenkins Join Nathan Lane Comedy

Cheyenne Jackson.

Cheyenne Jackson and Ken Jenkins (Dr. Kelso on Scrubs) have joined Nathan Lane's single-camera comedy for USA. The show, formerly known as On We Go, stars Lane as a Broadway actor whose ambitions are thwarted by the fact that he resembles, but is not, Nathan Lane. Those ambitious are further thwarted when not-Lane moves back to his hometown in Texas to take care of his ailing father. Jackson will play a "handsome doctor," according to Deadline, but it's not clear yet whom Jenkins will play, though it will probably someone rascally. Update: Jenkins will play the dad, USA announced. [Deadline]
