Anthony Anderson Joins NBC's Jimmy Fallon Comedy "DILFS"

Anthony Anderson is slated to star as one of three 30-something dads in Jimmy Fallon's NBC comedy DILFs. According to Deadline, Anderson will play a "sad-sack comic book collector-turned-stay-at-home dad of 4 kids," which includes two six-month-old twin girls in the pilot written by Charlie Grandy.

In the comedy series, Anderson's character and his wife are a seemingly happy couple, although they are struggling financially and feeling overwhelmed about their children.

Anderson has had several recurring roles on TV including The Shield, Law & Order and HBO's Treme. This will mark a return to comedy for the actor.
