TNT's "Franklin & Bash's" second season is getting a boost from actors from "American Pie" and "Nurse Jackie."
Chris Klein ("Wilfred") has been tapped to guest star in an episode. Klein plays an old high school buddy of Peter Bash (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) who's described as a charismatic politician who wants out of the race for governor because of a family scandal.
Paul Schulze ("Law & Order") is also on board. He's Klein's campaign manager, who butts heads with Bash and Jared Franklin (Breckin Meyer) over the candidate's decision to drop out of the race.
Klein and Schulze join an impressive array of guest stars coming to "F&B's" upcoming season 2: Cybill Shepherd, Rick Fox, Beau Bridges, Sean Astin, Kevin Nealon, Jane Seymour, Seth Green, Shiri Appleby and Kimberly Caldwell are all on board. The show will return sometime this summer.
