Sister, Sister alum Tim Reid and Alkoya Brunson (The Originals) are set for recurring roles in the upcoming first season of CBS/WBTV comedy Me, Myself & I.
Written by Dan Kopelman, Me, Myself & I stars Bobby Moynihan in a comedy about the defining moments in one man’s life over three distinct periods — as a 14-year-old in 1991 (Jack Dylan Grazer), at age 40 in present day (Moynihan) and at age 65 in 2042 (John Larroquette).
Reid and Brunson, will play the older and younger versions of Darryl (Jaleel White) respectively. Smart and savvy, Older Darryl (Reid) has remained the best friend and confidant of Alex Riley for almost 50 years. Confident and practical, Younger Darryl (Brunson) quickly becomes Alex’s best friend and collaborator on his inventions.
