‘Brothers,’ premiering this Friday night on Fox, follows the life of two brothers – Chill and Mike Trainor – who are thrown together after having to move back home with their parents. Problem is the brothers are often at each other’s throats.

The series already has an impressive list of guest stars lined up for the season – including Kim Kardashian, who will play herself. What other guest celebs can we expect?

“Our ideal guest star would be Ossie Davis but we know that’s not gonna happen,” Daryl Mitchell (Chill) jokingly told us about the legendary screen actor. “But next would be Denzel Washington and I’m gonna make that happen, I’m going hard with that, I’m going to make that happen. And Kirstie Alley. I worked with her and I know what she can bring to the table. She’s hysterical.”

Davis, who counts ‘The Cosby Show,’ ‘Growing Pains,’ and ‘The Brady Bunch’ as his favorite shows, also thinks that the show hearkens back to those golden ages of television. “I’d like to call it ‘black to the future,’” he joked. “We’re doing a sitcom with four cameras, and that’s the way it used to be done before. With the audience, and everything. We’re shooting an experience.”
