Fox’s upcoming comedy Us and Them (previously known as Friends and Family), which stars Alexis Bledel and Jason Ritter as Stacey and Gavin — a couple trying “to maintain their relationship while combining their polarizing families’ lives” — will also feature The Daily Show’s Aasif Mandvi, Deadline reports. Mandvi will play Stacey’s best friend’s “deviously tempting ex,” a “security guard roadie for the Dave Matthews Band” who just happens to be named Dave. Michael Ian Black, who guest-starred in the pilot as Stacey’s uncle, has also been made a series regular.
