Cougar Town alum Ian Gomez is set for a recurring role on Apple TV+’s dramedy Physical opposite Rose Byrne and Rory Scovell, from Almost Family creator Annie Weisman, Dirty John showrunner Alexandra Cunningham and Tomorrow Studios. Written by Weisman, who also will serve as showrunner, Physical is set in a 1980s Southern California beach community. It follows Sheila (Byrne), a woman struggling in her life as a quietly tortured housewife who finds an unconventional path to power through an unlikely source: the world of aerobics. Gomez will play ‘Ernie,’ an early tech pioneer who hit the jackpot with one of his inventions, and now plays a big role in local politics. Gomez is best known for playing Courtney Cox’s lovable neighbor Andy Torres on six seasons of the ABC comedy series Cougar Town. His other recent credits include features The Ultimate Playlist of Noise for Hulu and Lionsgate comedy Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar, opposite Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo. He also recurred on the first season of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show. He’s repped by Brave Artists Management and APA.
