Smash's Christian Borle is heading to Masters of Sex, Showtime announced. He'll play Francis Masters, brother of Michael Sheen's William Masters. (They don't immediately seem like siblings, but maybe it'll come through in the affectations?) Borle joins Sarah Silverman, Betsy Brandt, and Keke Palmer, who will also recur on MoS's upcoming second season. The show returns July 13, which would give one plenty of time to watch the 13-episode first season, except that it's not streaming anywhere and doesn't come out on DVD until the end of June.
