The Last Man On Earth alumna Mary Steenburgen and Drew Tarver (Bajillion Dollar Propertie$) are set for recurring roles on Bless the Harts, Fox’s half-hour animated comedy series from The Last Man on Earth co-executive producer Emily Spivey and executive producers Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Seth Cohen.
They join a stellar voice cast led by Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Maya Rudolph (The Good Place), Jillian Bell (Saturday Night Live) and Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors).
Created by Spivey, Bless the Harts follows a group of Southerners who are always broke as a joke and struggling for the American dream of status and wealth. What they don’t realize is that they’re already rich — in friends, family and laughter.
Steenburgen will play Crystal, a long time “frenemy” of Betty (Rudolph). Tarver will portray Randy, the town weirdo.
Spivey, Lord and Miller executive produce along with Wiig and and Cohen.
Steenburgen starred as Gail Klosterman on all four seasons of Fox’s The Last Man On Earth and was most recently seen on the big screen in Book Club. She’s repped by UTA, Management 360 and Gang Tyre.
Tarver, known for his role as Baxter Reynolds on Bajillion Dollar Propertie$, will next be seen as the male lead in new Comedy Central series The Other Two, from creators Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider and executive produced by Lorne Michaels, set for premiere January 24. His other recent TV credits include Superstore, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Love and LA to Vegas. Tarver is repped by UTA, Industry Entertainment and Myman Greenspan.
