Back in March it was announced that Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin had signed up to reteam for a new comedy for Netflix, and now another entertainment industry luminary is joining them, and he’ll be playing gay, according to THR.
Martin Sheen has signed up for the 13-episode series, which is called Grace and Frankie.
The show focuses on the titular nemeses, Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin), who are facing the last chapter of their lives, though not in the way they expected. Their husbands announce they are in love with each other and plan to get married. Unsurrisingly the women find their lives both turned upside down and – to their dismay – permanently intertwined. Eventually, to their surprise, they find they have each other.
Now we know Sheen will be one of the hubbys, Robert, who is married to Fonda’s character, but doesn’t want to be anymore.
