DAVID ARQUETTE SIGNS ON TO "MY NAME IS EARL"
Burbank - Se[tember 3, 2008 - David Arquette ("Scream") will be making the trip to Camden County when he plays a hapless amateur stuntman in an upcoming episode of NBC's "My Name is Earl." The casting announcement was confirmed today by show creator and executive producer Greg Garcia.
In the episode, scheduled to air this fall, Earl decides it's time to make it up to local stunt man, Sweet Johnny (guest-star David Arquette, "Scream") for sleeping with his girlfriend 10-years-ago. When Earl finds Sweet Johnny, he discovers his friend has a permanent injury that makes righting the wrong seem almost impossible. Elsewhere, Joy (Jaime Pressly) buys a gun after someone carjacks the Brat, but Darnell (Eddie Steeples) does not approve of owning the firearm. Ethan Suplee and Nadine Velazquez also star.
The fourth season premiere of "My Name is Earl" is September 25 at 8 pm followed by another original episode at 8:30 pm on NBC.
Created and written by Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia ("Yes, Dear"), "My Name Is Earl" is executive-produced by Garcia, and Bobby Bowman ("Yes, Dear"). The series is produced by Amigos de Garcia and Twentieth Century Fox Television.
