Patton Oswalt!

The veteran of such TV shows as United States of Tara and Bored to Death will play a dude described by the Men writers as “the Wozniak to Walden’s Jobs.” (If you’ll recall, Kutcher’s character is a billionaire who sold out to Microsoft). So far, Oswalt is only signed to appear in one episode (rats!).

In case you’ve lost track at home, Men is still the most-watched new comedy among viewers (17.1 million) and adults 18-49 (6.1/15) in primetime.
