Current role: Larry Bird, The Neighbors (ABC)
When The Neighbors debuted last year, it was quickly written off as cancel bait, but lo and behold the sitcom scored not only a second season, but an uptick in both ratings and acclaim. What seemed like a tired premise actually contains some solid laughs from the charmingly innocent aliens that inhabit the aptly named Hidden Hills. Neighbors isn't a show you need to watch, but it's not a waste of time if you happen to catch it either. The breakout character is undoubtedly alien leader, Larry Bird (they all have sports celeb names, because why not) played with robotic quirkiness and earnestness by Simon Templeman, suprisingly a relative newb to the sitcom world.
