RUNNING WILDE premieres Tuesday, Sept. 21 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Morris will portray MR. LUNT, STEVEN WILDE's (Arnett) fiercely protective former "manny"-turned-secretary, and Rodriguez will play MIGO, Steve's driver and life-long friend who is not above taking advantage of his employer's fiscal irresponsibility. Cross will recur as ANDY, an "eco-terrorist" who has been living in the Amazon rainforest with his girlfriend, EMMY KADUBIC (Keri Russell), and will serve as a romantic foil to Emmy's first love: Steve. Cross is set to appear in seven of the first 13 episodes of the season.

Robert Michael Morris' breakthrough role was as flamboyant hair stylist "Mickey Deane" opposite Lisa Kudrow in the critically acclaimed cable series "The Comeback." His additional television credits include "Brothers & Sisters," "How I Met Your Mother," "The Class," "Arrested Development" and "Will & Grace."

Mel Rodriguez's television work includes recurring roles on "Big Love," "FlashForward," "The Middle" and "George Lopez." His film credits include "Little Miss Sunshine" and "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada." Rodriguez recently guest-starred on the cable comedy series "Workaholics."

David Cross is best known for his portrayal of "Tobias F�nke" on the Emmy Award-winning "Arrested Development." This fall brings the premiere of his original comedy series, "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret." The show follows the awkward misadventures of an American office temp and convenient liar named Todd Margaret, who bluffs his way into a senior sales position heading up the London office for a new energy drink. Cross created the show and serves as writer, producer and star � multiple positions he also filled on his previous original program � the animated series, "Freak Show." He won an Emmy for his work as a writer on "The Ben Stiller Show," and earned three additional Emmy nominations for the cult-favorite series "Mr. Show with Bob and David," which he co-created and wrote with Bob Odenkirk. His film credits include "Men in Black," "Men in Black II," "Waiting for Guffman," "Ghost World," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "School for Scoundrels," "I'm Not There" and "Year One." Cross is also an author whose first book, entitled "I Drink for a Reason," spent multiple weeks on The New York Times Bestseller List.

RUNNING WILDE is the new romantic comedy series centering on a spoiled, filthy rich playboy who desperately tries to win the heart of his humanitarian childhood sweetheart by helping raise her 12-year-old daughter. The series stars Will Arnett, Keri Russell, Stefania Owen, Peter Serafinowicz, Robert Michael Morris and Mel Rodriguez.

RUNNING WILDE is produced by Tantamount Studios, Five Hole Pictures and Principato-Young Management in association with Lionsgate Television.
