Don’t believe us? Then ask “Running Wilde” star and co-creator Will Arnett, who was a “Late Show” guest Thursday night (Sept. 2) and introduced Shaffer’s appearance to the world. “There’s a lot of Oscar buzz — which is weird, because it’s TV,” Arnett says.
Shaffer will appear in the fourth episode of “Running Wilde,” a FOX rep says. The show, which premieres Sept. 21, stars Arnett as the very wealthy, very sheltered Steve Wilde and Keri Russell as his crusading, do-gooding long-lost love, Emmy. You’ll also see Stefania Owen as Emmy’s daughter, Puddle, and Robert Michael Morris as Mr. Lunt, Steve’s tremendously overprotective security chief/ex-male nanny.
Take a look at the clip. Arnett may be overselling the Oscar part juuuust a little, but it’s pretty funny nonetheless.
