As you saw in my previous post, a number of new guest stars have signed on to Gilmore Girls: Seasons for the Netflix revival. While I’m sure there will be dozens more, once all is said and done, I’m working hard to keep my actors list up-to-date and provide you some background here on the site. One of the latest actors to join the series is Dan Bucatinsky, seen above posing with Alexis Bledel and in the other set photo I posted yesterday.
According to his Instagram updates, Dan was filming a scene with Alexis, but not with Lauren. Mystery there! He kind of seems professor-ish, don’t you think? Maybe someone at Chilton? What other ideas do you have?
Dan is perhaps most recently known for his stint on Scandal as James Novak, Cyrus’ husband, a role for which he won an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama. Dan is also known for his work on the web series Web Therapy, and for his role as Kevin 2 on Marry Me.
Fans of Lauren Graham may know that Dan is good friends with Lauren, as seen here with her and with Sam Pancake, also new to the series. The friends first met back in 2000 for the short-lived series MYOB (Mind Your Own Business). Since friends like to stick together, Lauren even guest starred on Web Therapy in the episode Cunning Chameleon.
I’m personally VERY excited to have Dan join Gilmore Girls, as I’m a huge fan of his work. And this? THIS sums it up for me.
