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.

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."
