ABC's freshman comedy series The Neighbors has brought on director Michael Bay to guest star in an upcoming episode as himself. The move seems appropriate, since the filmmaker's Transformers franchise and this show both revolve around aliens, albeit in much different ways.
The director will pop up during a scene where Debbie Weaver (Jami Gertz) heads to a night club for an adult's night out. Ironically, Michael Bay was mentioned by name in an earlier episode, where the Zabvronian couple Jackie (Toks Olagundoye) and Larry (Simon Templeman) seemed to hint that the filmmaker had some sort of connection to their alien race. It isn't known when the filmmaker's episode will air.
ABC seems to have finally found the final piece in its Wednesday night puzzle with The Neighbors, after moving shows such as Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B---- In Apartment 23 out of the coveted mid-week spot. The Neighbors continues Season 1 with "Thanksgiving Is for the Bird-Kersees" Wednesday, November 14 at 8:30 PM ET on ABC.
