Ben Falcone who is known for his unscrupulous antics in the hilarious Washington Mutual commercial and has guested on the hit NBC sitcom Joey in the role of Howie, has just signed on for additional episodes.

10 bucks says he joins as a regular (ala Cliff on Cheers)


20 bucks says he makes the show twice as funny.

Well, "Friends" would hire actors as semi-regulars to appear in a certain number of episodes throughout the season (Mike is one example). I imagine that's what they'll do with Howard, rather than make him a regular.

To be honest, I wanna see more Howard, but not as a regular. Like Bobbie, he's only funny in small doses.

The show is different from Friends that in thatt the cast can only include the 6 "Friends"

Once again, aluding to Frasier.... he could be added ala Bulldog, who took several seasons to join as a regular.

In the end, it's all a matter of pay.

True. I never really thought of it that way.

I think this is a simple case of a character who wasn't meant to do much, but because he was so strong and audiences loved him, he is quickly gaining more airtime. AKA Cliff Clavin and Frasier Crane.

He wasn't in tonight's episode.... hopefully we'll see more of him though.

Well, this episode takes place before they met Howie.

He won't be in next week's either, but I'm sure he'll appear again around sweeps.

He won't be in the next episode either. After "Joey and the Party," they had only signed him on to do three more episodes (which ended up being "Perfect Storm," "Dream Girl pt 2" and "Big Audition") and brought him back for "Joey and the Assistant," but I don't know if they're planning on having him again any time soon.
