Chris Elliott is set to guest star in an upcoming episode of Hot in Cleveland, E! News has exclusively learned, and the Saturday Night Live vet has landed one juicy role: He's Betty White's new boyfriend! Seriously!

When the fifth season of the hit comedy returns in the spring, Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), Joy (Jane Leeves) and Victoria (Wendie Malick) are shocked when Elka takes an unexpectwed lover, the laid-back Luke, played by Elliott, in episode four. You know what we say? Do your thang, Elka!

Elliott has won four Emmy Awards for his work as writer on Late Night With David Letterman.

We exclusively reported that Modern Family star Sarah Hyland will also appear in an upcoming episode of the TV Land sitcom as Victoria's new rival Ivy Malone, an indie darling who is threatening the older actress's chances at landing an Oscar nomination.

Also set to guest star in the upcoming fifth season are Jason Priestly, Thomas Lennon, New Girl's Max Greenfield and The Office's Angela Kinsey, while Jennifer Love Hewitt, Craig Ferguson, Susan Lucci and Georgia Engel are all set to return to the series.
