January Jones Joins Will Forte in Post-Apocalyptic Sitcom 'The Last Man on Earth'
The Will Forte starring vehicle The Last Man on Earth has added several new cast members, including Mad Men and X-Men: First Class alum January Jones.
The Saturday Night Live alum will play Phil Miller, who is described as "an average guy-and humanity's last hope-who discovers what life is like when no one tells you what to do." Jones will play an unnamed series regular who has been described as a "strong independent spirit" with "warmth, strength, and a no-nonsense attitude." The post-apocalyptic comedy supposedly follows the last man on Earth, although Mel Rodriguez has also been cast as a series regular named Todd, so it seems unlikely that he is actually the last man in the world.
Also joining the cast are 30 Rock's Kristen Schaal and Neighbours's Cleopatra Coleman, who will both play recurring roles with potential for upgrades to regular roles.
The Last Man on Earth will premiere on March 1 at 9 pm on Fox.
