Tonight Is Kumail’s Last Whiplash, Joining Cast of TNT’s “Franklin and Bash”

Tonight’s installment of Whiplash at UCB NY features Leo Allen, Hannibal Buress, Kamau Bell and the last UCB performance by Kumail Nanjiani before he moves to LA. According to the The Comic’s Comic, Kumail will play nerdy lawyer who is also a germophobe on the recently picked up TNT series “Franklin and Bash”.

Franklin & Bash, from Sony TV, writers/executive producers Kevin Falls and Bill Chais and executive producer Jamie Tarses, stars Breckin Meyer and Mark-Paul Gosselaar as street lawyers and lifelong friends who, after taking down a white-shoe law firm in a high-profile case, are recruited by the firm’s patriarch. The pilot, co-starring Dana Davis, Kumail Nanjiani, Reed Diamond, Garcelle Beauvais and Malcolm McDowell has been garnering strong buzz from the get-go and attracted a well-known cast. []
