John Stamos and Mark Consuelos are headed for "The New Normal," according to EW.

Stamos is playing a co-worker of Jane's (Ellen Barkin) who finds his sexuality being questioned by the foul-mouthed grandma. Consuelos will appear as a grip on the "Glee"-style show created by Andrew Rannells' character, and will find himself as the object of Rocky's (NeNe Leakes) affections.

Both stars have previously appeared on other Ryan Murphy projects -- Stamos recurred on "Glee" in Season 2 and Consuelos is currently appearing on "American Horror Story: Asylum."
