On the Life in Pieces episode “Soccer Gigi TV Mikey,” while Matt (Thomas Sadoski) takes over as soccer coach for Sophia’s team, John (James Brolin) and Joan (Dianne Wiest) kind of welcome Joan’s nephew Mikey into their home. Mikey does a number of things to make everyone in the Short family uncomfortable, including hitting on his first cousin Heather (Betsey Brandt) and bringing a squealing pig to the breakfast table.
Mikey is portrayed by Greg Grunberg. He’s best known for his roles on Heroes and Heroes Reborn (Mark Parkman), Masters of Sex (Gene Moretti), The Client List (Dale Locklin), Alias (Eric Weiss), Felicity (Sean Blumberg), and most recently in the film Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (Snap Wexley). Life in Pieces airs Thursdays at 8:30pm on CBS.
