Rob Corddry (Children's Hospital) is set to appear in at least two episodes of the upcoming third season of ABC's Happy Endings. He will play a car dealership owner, who Penny and Jane meet when Penny goes shopping for a new vehicle and ends up hiring Jane as a new salesperson.

Odette Annable (House) has been tapped for a recurring role on CBS' upcoming new midseason drama, Golden Boy. She will play ADA Kat O'Connor, a young, attractive attorney with a complicated marital history and who prosecutes the cases handled by the squad.

Byron Mann (The Man With the Iron Fists) will recur on The CW's Arrow. He will play an enigmatic man who has a complicated past with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell).

For the upcoming second season of ABC's Last Man Standing, many roles are being recast. Kristin - Mike Baxter's (Tim Allen) eldest daughter played by Alexandra Krosney in season one, will now be portrayed by Amanda Fuller (Grey's Anatomy). Kristin's son, Boyd, has aged from a toddler to a five-year-old and will now be played by newcomer Flynn Morrison instead of twins Luke and Evan Kruntchev. The final role being recast is that of Boyd's father, who was played by singer Nick Jonas in one guest appearance last year. The revamped character, which has yet to be cast, will recur throughout the season and will be more of a foil to Mike.
