A reunion of a number of cast members from the NBC comedy “My Name Is Earl” is set to take place next month on another series and another network. TVLine.com reports that the event is scheduled for the Feb. 26 episode of Fox’s “Raising Hope.”
Both shows are created by Greg Garcia, the piece notes. The event will feature all of the main cast members from “Earl,” with Jason Lee, Jaime Pressly, Ethan Suplee, Eddie Steeples, Nadine Velazquez and Abdoulaye N’Gom all set to take part.
For some of the actors, the “Earl”-focused episode — titled “Making the Band” — is a return to “Hope.” Lee “will reprise his role as faded rock star Smokey Floyd, and Jaime Pressly and Ethan Suplee will play Burt and Virginia’s neighbors Donna and Andrew. (Yep — Lee’s going to sing.)” the piece reports.
Velazquez will appear as an employee of a party-supply store, and N’Gom will play an airline pilot.
