Julia Sweeney (Saturday Night Live, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) will also appear in the finale in the role of Dr. Green, a therapist with whom Kat has a session. During said session, Kat proves to be a challenging patient.

Wass is most notably known for bringing to life Danny Dallas on the series Soap, which ran from 1977-1981. After the show ended, he focused on movie projects like Curse of the Pink Panther and Oh, God! You Devil, before nabbing the role on Blossom in 1991. It ran for five seasons.

Wass made his directorial debut on Blossom, leading to new career opportunities behind the camera on TV shows including Caroline in the City, Spin City, Rules of Engagement, The Big Bang Theory and Mom, among many others.

He is repped by ICM Partners.

Sweeney is most recognized for her work on Saturday Night Live from 1990-1995. During her time on the NBC sketch comedy series, she popularized the androgynous character Pat. More recent credits include Fox/NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Hulu’s Shrill and Showtime’s Work In Progress.

Sweeney had a sold-out run at the Geffen performing her show Julia Sweeney: Older and Wider, a part stand-up, part-storytelling show tackling the topics of parenting, religion, cancer and feminism.

She is repped by WME.
