In MAD LOVE (created by Matt Tarses), premiering tonight on CBS at 8:30 pm, Jason Biggs and Sarah Chalke play Ben Parr and Kate Swanson, who essentially fall in love at first sight. Their respective best friends, Tyler Labine’s Larry Munsch and Judy Greer’s Connie Grabowski, on the other hand, fall into sharp-tongued mutual irritation that may or may not mask genuine attraction to one another. Canadian born Labine, known to REAPER fans as the plain-spoken and often peculiar Sock, brings his sarcastic yet likable chops to MAD LOVE’s Larry. He plays a very different character in the upcoming feature […]Read On »
