A new Guy is about to shake up Sean’s love life.

Sean Saves the World has snagged Guy Pearce (Memento, Prometheus, Iron Man 3) to guest star as a romantic interest for Sean Hayes’ single-dad character, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Pearce will play a charming, thrill-seeking adventurer who Sean will do almost anything to impress. He’ll appear in the NBC sitcom’s 15th episode, which is slated to shoot in early 2014.

Sean has been on something of a stunt-casting roll this week. On Tuesday, we reported that Hayes’ Will & Grace sidekick Megan Mullally will guest star later this season as his onscreen sis.

Pearce’s recent TV credits include a supporting turn in HBO’s Mildred Pierce miniseries, a role that netted him an Emmy in 2011.
