In the Crowded episode “Brother,” Mike (Patrick Warburton) isn’t thrilled when his successful stepbrother Ethan comes for a visit. Mike has been holding on to a lot of resentment and for a long time (20 years!) because Ethan is clearly his father’s (Stacy Keach) favorite. “I just want my stepbrother to fail at something,” Mike confides in his wife Martina (Carrie Preston). “Does that make me a bad person?” Martina, a professional therapist, says with a smile, “Yes, yes, it does.”
Ethan is portrayed by Clifford McGhee. The professional dancer/choreographer (check out his moves below to Ne-Yo’s “One in a Million”) has had roles on Castle, Weeds, Major Crimes, Black Jesus, Justified, and Complications, among others. Crowded airs Sundays at 9:30pm on NBC.
