Jayma Mays to Play Will Arnett's Sister on 'The Millers'


Jayma Mays


The Emma Pillsbury of 'Glee' finds her new TV gig on the upcoming comedy series, replacing Mary Elizabeth Ellis.

Jayma Mays will be one of "The Millers" on the CBS new sitcom. The "Glee" actress is tapped to portray Will Arnett's on-screen sister, Debbie, who was initially set to be played by Mary Elizabeth Ellis.

On heels of the change on the casting department, TVLine reports that producers are also looking for a new actor to play Deb's husband. "Prison Break" actor Michael Rapaport was originally recruited to star opposite Ellis.

Coming from "My Name Is Earl" creator, the multi-camera project will premiere September 27 after "The Big Bang Theory". It's supported by Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges who will bring complications into Arnett's life as his feuding parents.

With Mays finding her new gig on "The Millers", her "Glee" character Emma Pillsbury is believed to get even less screen time in the upcoming season of the FOX hit musical series. It's unclear how it will fit in the storyline as she married Will (Matthew Morrison) in the finale of the last season.
