Edwards to appear on CBS comedy Monday night

ANDERSON – Tune in to CBS at 8:30 p.m. Monday to watch what just might be a former Anderson resident’s big break.

Tye Edwards will appear on Monday’s episode of the top-rated comedy “2 Broke Girls.” The series, in its third season, is about two young women waitressing at a diner in New York who form an unlikely friendship with an eye on turning around their fortunes. Starring Kat Dennings as the sassy and streetwise cupcake baker Max and Beth Behrs as the business-minded former uptown sophisticate Caroline, the show has been a recipe for success.

Edwards is excited to be part of the acclaimed series, even if his part is relatively small.

“My character doesn’t even have a name, just ‘Cute, Sad Guy,’ ” Edwards said in a phone interview from Los Angeles, where he now lives.

Despite the lack of a name for his character, the speaking part offers a huge opportunity for the 1995 Anderson University grad, whose background is in sketch comedy. The role was expanded after his audition, even though Edwards got caught “daydreaming” during his first table read. Instead of getting "canned" as he feared, Edwards found himself with multiple scenes with the stars of the show.

“It was great to be in front of a live audience, and it was my first time in front of multiple cameras,” Edwards said.

The role gave Edwards a chance to get to know the cast, including Dennings, who starred as Darcy in last weekend’s blockbuster release “Thor: The Dark World.” He said it was amazing to watch Dennings work as she learned the huge amount of material the cast deals with each week.

“I told Kat, “I’m in awe of you,’ ” he said. “And she said, “Oh, my god, thank you so much. Sometimes I feel like no one appreciates us, and just thank you for that.’
