Kevin Nealon and Martin Mull, will you please approach the bench?

TNT's Franklin & Bash have called up two incredible comedic vets to guest star in their upcoming second season, and we've got all the exclusive details on their roles. Plus, we were just on set to chat with Kevin Nealon about his gig, so maybe we'll just let him tell you all about it…

Nealon will play Larry Reynolds, the chief council of a large beverage company, who's also a big party guy. Here's hoping we get some superb drunk-acting from the SNL vet.

Mull, most recently seen on Two and a Half Men, will play Judge Flannigan, who is subjected to Peter (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and Jared's (Breckin Meyer) most recent, outlandish court escapade: a death-defying water-tank stunt.

But the biggest scoop we got from our set visit? Nealon is certain his career will be over after his Franklin & Bash stint. "After this episode airs, I think that I will probably be kicked out of Hollywood," he tells us. "It's not that it's a bad show; it's a great show. The acting is superb from the background players, but not so much from the A-team, the primaries if that's what they're called. But you know they mean well, that's the beauty of it—they mean well, but sometimes that's not enough."

OK, he's kidding. But we were kind of hoping to start a feud between Nealon, Meyer and Gosselaar.

To get more details on Nealon's guest role, check out our interview with him above.

Franklin & Bash returns to TNT next summer.
