'Franklin & Bash' Gets a Dose of Deadpan From 'Party Down's' Martin Starr [Exclusive Video]

Martin Starr ("Party Down," "Freaks and Geeks") is bringing his deadpan delivery to TNT's bromance dramedy "Franklin & Bash." And Starr's character, a brilliant actuary, is not impressed with Jared Franklin (Breckin Meyer) and Peter Bash's (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) chillax approach to life and lawyering. He is being accused of murder, after all! Check out our exclusive sneak peek at this upcoming episode, "By the Numbers," now.

When F&B, who are representing Starr, offer him a beer during a session, he's less than thrilled. "Alcohol affects sleep patterns. Men who sleep less than six hours a night are likely to die four to seven years sooner than their teetotaling counterparts," says Starr's character. Now it's Franklin and Bash's turn to look unimpressed.

Who does look impressed? F&B's lovely private investigator Carmen (Dana Davis), which leaves the BFF lawyers at a loss. "OK, what is the deal? Is it hypnosis? Is it pheromones? What?" Franklin asks incredulously about the actuary's ability to make women swoon.

To find out what mysterious power Starr's character has over the ladies, tune in to "Franklin & Bash" on Wednesday, 7/10 at 9 PM on TNT.
