The DiMeos are going to meet the other DiMeos in next week’s episode of “Speechless.”
According to TV Guide, Rob Corddry — who plays Joe Krutel on HBO’s comedy-drama series “Ballers” — is set to appear as Jimmy’s (John Ross Bowie) dentist brother, Billy, in Season 1, episode 7 of “Speechless.”
The news outlet also revealed that the episode, titled “T-H-A-THANKSGIVING,” opens with a commercial for Billy’s profession, in which he portrays every role in the advert: a man, a woman and a child. The photo below showing Corddry in drag is part of the said commercial.
The synopsis for the episode reveals that the DiMeos want to avoid another disastrous Thanksgiving with Billy and his family so they conceive a plan to prevent the other DiMeos from coming over. Unfortunately for them, their genius plan backfires when Billy and his family invite themselves over to celebrate.
Kenneth (Cedric Yarbrough) is also invited to the DiMeos’ celebration. While he and Ray (Mason Cook) “destroy” the turkey, the rest of the DiMeos play a game with the visiting DiMeos, only to be reminded of how annoying their relatives can be.
When the game heats up, Jimmy and Billy decide to take their competition to the streets, making the DiMeos realize that Billy’s family is not as perfect as it appears.
Aside from Corddry, Andrea Anders (“Joey,” “Better Off Ted”) also guest stars in the episode as Billy’s wife, Audrey. Other guest stars in the episode are Eileen Barnett, TJ Zecchino, Matthew Bridges and Nicole Dele.
Six weeks ago, Anders took to Instagram to share a photo of her with “Speechless” star Minnie Driver on the set of the Scott Silveri-created series.
“Speechless” Season 1, episode 7 is written by Eric Lapidus and directed by Claire Scanlon. It airs on Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 8:30 p.m. EST on ABC.
