As we approach the season 2 premiere of the Disney Channel hybrid comedy, Just Roll With It, Disney Channel has announced that two cast members will be added to the show. The sitcom/improv series will see the addition of J.C. Currais as a regular cast member and John Ratzenberger in a recurring role.
- Raising the comedy stakes, the second season of the hybrid family sitcom/improvisation series Just Roll With It is set to premiere Sunday, March 15th at 8:45 p.m. on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.
- Comedian J.C. Currais becomes a series regular cast member, in the fan-favorite role of Gator, and John Ratzenberger (Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story, Cheers) guest stars in a recurring role as Blair’s grandfather.
- The season also includes “wild” animals, real-life wedding vows with legal matrimony as part of a storyline and feats of epic proportions. The studio audience votes for wacky scenarios that the cast must improvise their way through during the show taping.
- Additional season two guest stars include Charles Shaughnessy (The Magicians, The Nanny), Johnny Pemberton (Superstore), Jason Earles (Disney’s Hannah Montana), Debra Wilson (MADtv), Jillian Shea Spaeder (Disney’s Walk the Prank) and Kingston Foster (Disney’s ZOMBIES).
- Just Roll With It follows the newly blended Bennett-Blatt family as they navigate everyday family life and the ups and downs of adolescence. The series stars Tobie Windham and Suzi Barrett as fun-loving newlyweds and parents, Byron and Rachel; talented young actors Ramon Reed and Kaylin Hayman as preteen step-siblings, Owen and Blair; and J.C. Currais as The Gator.
- In the season two premiere, the Bennett-Blatt family is finally rescued from the sea only to discover Rachel’s mischievous and somewhat unpredictable dad (Ratzenberger)—who relishes in being a doting but unruly Grandpa—has been kicked out of his retirement community and needs to move in with the family.
- “Just Roll With It” is filmed in Los Angeles and carries a TV-G parental guideline. The new season premieres on Sunday, March 15th.
