Bristow, who’s familiar to audiences from numerous TV and film appearances, will play Dr. Keebler, psychiatrist to the show’s lead character, talent agent Nathan Adler (Leon Acord).
Bristow’s complete TV and film credits are too numerous to list, but include recurring guest appearances on CSI, Malcolm in the Middle, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld and Mad About You. He was a regular on Ellen during DeGeneres’ historic coming out, appeared frequently on Whose Line Is It Anyway? and appeared in the films Showgirls, Austin Powers, and others. He’s also well known in LA’s improv community as a teacher and performer with Improvatorium.
Writer/producer Acord hopes it’s just the first appearance of many! “I’m a huge fan of Patrick’s! I’d love it if he came back again and again! God knows Nathan needs a good shrink,” he jokes.
Old Dogs & New Tricks follows four middle-aged gay best friends living in youth-obsessed West Hollywood. Acord (Carved in Stone, Some Prefer Cake), Curt Bonnem (Kowalski; Lovelace: The Rock Opera), Jeffrey Patrick Olson (Daddy) and David Pevsner (Naked Boys Singing, To Bitter and Back) star as the four friends; cabaret star Amanda Abel and Ryland Shelton appear in recurring roles.
The web series is written/created by Acord, and is developed for the web and directed by Arvin Bautista (Archie’s Last Project). Matt Ladensack, Laurence Whiting and Acord serve as Co-Executive Producers. The show’s score is composed by veteran film and TV composer Nic. tenBroek (Dark Angel, Xena: Warrior Princess).
