Macdonald will guest-star on the sophomore comedy’s Turkey Day-themed outing as Mike’s brother, Rusty.
In the same episode, John Cullum (‘Northern Exposure’) will reprise his role as grandpa “Big Mike,” whom viewers first met during Season 1.
The reason for this reunion? Frankie (played by Patricia Heaton) has Rusty and Big Mike over as part of a plan to force her husband (Neil Flynn) to better express his feelings toward his dad and brother.
Yeah… Why do I have a feeling that reads better on paper than in practice?
ABC’s ‘The Middle’ premieres its second season on Wednesday, September 22, at 8/7c.
