Netflix’s upcoming comedy starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin has a leading man: Martin Sheen will play the role of Robert, the husband of one of the women.

This untitled, single-camera comedy centers on two women, Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin). Although happy being nemeses, the two have to face the intertwining of their lives when their two husbands announce that they are in love and planning to get married. Sheen will play Grace’s husband, Robert (according to The Hollywood Reporter).

In addition to decades of movie work and his prominent role as the President on “The West Wing,” Sheen has recently co-starred with his son, Charlie Sheen, on the FX comedy, “Anger Management.”

The 13-episode Netflix comedy is expected at some point in 2015.
