'Happy Endings' Scoop: Elisha Cuthbert & Eliza Coupe Talk Third Kerkovich Sis, Loving the Car Czar, and Max's Gay Pageant


Are you ready to meet the third Kervovich sister?

Stephanie March (Law & Order: SVU) guest stars in the upcoming Happy Endings season finale as Jane and Alex's big sister Brooke, whose upcoming nuptials will send all of the Kerkovich girls into a frenzy. So will Brooke be more like uptight Jane or baby sister Alex?

"She's definitely Jane to the max," Elisha Cuthbert revealed during a recent conference call with reporters. "It's kind of fun to see them together and kind of getting competitive."

Eliza Coupe agreed, and said bringing March into the family felt like a natural fit. "She was fantastic," Coupe shared. "It was so fun and she was perfect for it."

The expansion of the Kerkovich family tree isn't the only thing fans have to look forward to as Happy Endings winds down its hilarious third season. This Friday's all-new episode will have Dave and Alex helping Max prepare for the "Mr. Gay Gay Chicago" pageant.

"Dave and I are going to have different takes on how we want to coach so that's obviously going to pose for some conflict," Cuthbert laughed. "But I think what you should be more excited about is the fact that Max dresses up in the most insane outfits you've ever seen and it's going to be pretty incredible what he puts together and what he ends up wearing... You're going to see Max in some pretty crazy clown costumes."

The upcoming April 26 episode will also find Jane and Brad joining an exclusive tennis club to get some time to themselves. But there obviously won't be any relaxing couples' matches for the always competitive Jane.

"Every episode it's like there's always some random thing that Jane's obsessed with so I just kind of like go for it even if it's the dumbest little thing," Coupe said. "Like every single one is like the biggest obsession so I just make it that that's her number one thing and then until the next episode when it's something totally different."

Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Rob Corddry will also reprise their roles as Max's former roommate Chase and the Car Czar, respectively. For Coupe, getting the chance to work with Corddry again was a treat. "He is so talented and he's just the nicest guy, like he's such a great guy. He's so easy to work with."

"And he's also just like such a fun character," she added. "The Car Czar is such a weird like character that came in and the dynamic of Jane and The Car Czar I think is really fun and he comes back in in full force and does some pretty interesting things with Penny. So that will be fun to watch for everyone. I got to see it firsthand so let's see what you guys think."

Happy Endings airs Friday nights at 8/7c on ABC.
