David Rasche is set as a series regular on TV Land’s single-camera dark comedy Impastor. Written by Christopher Vane and directed by Robert Greenberg, the story centers on Buddy (Michael Rosenbaum), a lowlife on the run from his debts who hides away in a small town by conning its residents into thinking he’s their new gay pastor. Rasche, repped by Liebman Entertainment, Innovative Artists and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams, will play Owen Schmidt, a businessman and President of Loomis Lutheran Church. Although he welcomes Buddy as the new pastor, he’s warily suspicious of this outsider and quite baffled by Buddy’s utter lack of Scriptural knowledge. Rasche will next be seen on Broadway in The Country House with Blythe Danner. His recent TV credits include recurring roles on Veep and Black Box.
