The episode, according to press notes, is described as such: "When last we saw Tommy Gavin (a very long 19 months ago), he was sitting next to his dead dad in the stands of a minor-league ballpark. He'll bury Michael Gavin tonight with his characteristic flair, then get on with his life. Priority No. 1: Deal with that Section 8 procedure Chief Feinberg has initiated against him. Why, then, is Feinberg acting so nice? Meanwhile, Colleen has a new boyfriend she doesn't want Tommy to know about, and so does Janet." Michael J. Fox also guest stars.

Chase will also be seen on the May 12 episode of "Cupid," which airs on ABC at 10 PM ET; check local listings. Chase will play the role of Peter Karnow, who is described as "painfully gorgeous, a statistician, a nerd in glasses, who is the second expert involved with the website Datewell along with Claire. Peter is immediately attracted to Claire and slowly begins to angle his way towards a date with her. However, all of his apparent appeal and niceties are stripped away when it's revealed after a test date with the Bohemian Woman, that he's a cad."

Chase, recently seen in The Story of My Life, has also starred on Broadway in High Fidelity, Lennon, The Full Monty, Aida, Rent and Miss Saigon. His regional credits include roles in Assassins, Mame, Electra, Son of Fire, You're Gonna Love Tomorrow and Trask & Fenn.
