The character of Howard Fox is described as a “rugged and eccentric” individual who comes back into Dina’s life, ready to make amends for leaving her when she was just a child. The character was recently referenced in the Oct. 24 episode “Self-Care,” when Glenn served as a temporary stand-in for her deadbeat dad. Norris will assume the role in an episode slated to air in January.
