Can Tom Green help spread a little Seed? The Ottawa-born comedian is featured on tonight’s episode of Seed (8:30 p.m. ET on City).
Green plays an arrogant shrink named Dr. Stuart Meinertzhagen who counsels the show’s dysfunctional families. The good doctor’s new-age methods put him in direct rivalry with Anastasia’s mom Janet (Laura de Carteret, The L.A. Complex), who considers Meinertzhagen a total fraud.
Some guest star name recognition could help this series, which has struggled so far on Monday nights.
Green says the main thing he learned on the Halifax-based set of Seed was how to play Paddleball. “I broke 300 without even looking,” he says. “Clearly we had some time between takes.”
Green says the whole cast was into paddleball and that they presented him with an autographed paddle when his time among them was up. “I’m planning on breaking a thousand and making a YouTube video of it.”
