In The Grinder episode “Exodus,” while husband and wife Stewart (Fred Savage) and Deb (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) break the news to Dean (Rob Lowe) that it’s time for him to move out and find his own place, Deb also realizes that she’s become reliant on Andre, Dean’s former TV stand-in, who’s been staying with them.
Andre is portrayed by Efren Ramirez. He’s best known for his roles in the film and TV series Napoleon Dynamite (Pedro), and on Eastbound & Down (Catuey). He’s currently filming the comedy Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life with Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls) and Rob Riggle (The Daily Show), which will be released in October 2016. The Grinder airs Tuesdays at 9:30pm on FOX.
