TVLine Items: Superstore Reunion on Auto, Hit-Monkey Renewed and More

American Auto is staging a mini Superstore reunion.

Ben Feldman will guest-star in the NBC comedy’s Feb. 14 episode as Chase, the preppy, tech bro college best friend of Wesley (played by Jon Barinholtz), TVLine has learned.

Chase’s “ability to spin a yarn puts Fyre Festival’s Billy McFarland to shame,” which should come in handy when “Wesley introduces Katherine to Chase with the hopes of getting Payne to invest in his green energy company,” per the official description.

Feldman and Barinholtz, of course, co-starred together as Jonah and Marcus on Superstore, whose creator Justin Spitzer is also behind American Auto.

E! News was first to report Feldman’s guest spot.
