'Joey' Gets a New Friend

(Posted August 15, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES ( Chandler and the old gang won't be around anytime soon, but NBC's "Joey" has found a new friend.

Miguel A. Nunez Jr. is joining the cast of the second-year comedy in the fall, producer Warner Bros. TV confirms. The former "Tarzan" and "Juwanna Mann" star will be playing Zach, a fellow actor who becomes a friend and foil for Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc).

NBC chief Kevin Reilly and the show's producers have previously said they wanted to open up "Joey's" world a little bit this year, after spending much of last season in Joey's apartment. The Zach character should allow for that, as will the fact that Joey finds some success in Hollywood and can afford to buy a house.

Additionally, Jennifer Coolidge, who play's Joey's agent, Bobbie, has been made a cast regular and will appear in every episode.

Nunez co-starred in The WB's "Tarzan" two seasons ago, playing Detective Sam Sullivan. His other credits also include "The Adventures of Pluto Nash," "Scooby-Doo" and "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate." On TV, he's appeared in the late-1980s series "Tour of Duty" and done guest spots on "Boomtown," "The Bernie Mac Show" and "The Hughleys."
