According to TVLine, Carbonell will play Jude (Portia de Rossi)'s wealthy, real-estate developer ex-boyfriend. Executive produced by De Rossi's wife Ellen Degeneres, the buzzed-about comedy pilot stars De Rossi and Malin Akerman as sisters with very different personalities. De Rossi plays the whip-smart Jude, while Akerman co-stars as the far less smart, Candy.
In addition to "Ringer" and "Lost," Carbonell has had guest-starring roles on "Wilfred," "Psych," and more.
