The new ABC sitcom American Housewife is about Suzanne Otto, “an average wife and mother” living in the tony town of Westport, Connecticut (where Martha Stewart and Paul Newman used to live). Funny lady Katy Mixon plays Suzanne with aplomb and with the support of her character’s husband Greg Otto, portrayed by Diedrich Bader.
Bader is known for his roles in Rush Hour (Agent Westhusing), Veep (Bill Ericsson), The Exes (Paul), Save Me (Elliot Tompkins), Bones (Andrew Hacker), and The Drew Carey Show (Oswald Lee Harvey). Bader is also well recognized for his role as Lawrence, Ron Livingston’s neighbor in the film Office Space, and as a voice actor (the Saber-Toothed Tiger in Ice Age, Albert on Phineas and Ferb), among many others. American Housewife airs Tuesdays at 8:30pm on ABC.
