There's a legit bromance brewing on the set of TV Land's "The Exes," and it's hilarious! Why? Because it's between comedy A-listers Donald Faison and Wayne Knight. Faison dished on his new pal to Ben Lyons, host of Yahoo!'s "The Sidebar."
It's hard to see Knight and not think, "Hello, Newman," but Faison is adamant that his co-star buddy is nothing like the Seinfeld villain: "He's not bumbling, stumbling. He's completely different. Wayne's actually -- I'm gonna put it out there -- Wayne's a suave dude." Who knew?
Faison almost jokingly admitted that Knight's also a good wingman, before remembering that he's married to Jessica Simpson's BFF CaCee Cobb. Oops! (The two tied the knot late last year.)

What does the new dynamic duo do on their "man dates," as Faison calls them? They recently went to see "Star Trek Into Darkness" and "Man of Steel." Sounds like a superhero spoof on "The Exes" would be a good fit for these two.
Fun fact: Faison might be most famous for his roles in "Clueless," "Scrubs," and now "The Exes," but the actor has also appeared in some music videos, such as Fall Out Boy's video for their cover of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" (Faison and Pete Wentz are good friends!) and De La Soul's "Stakes Is High."
Even though Faison ended up on the cutting room floor of that one, it's still his favorite. "The fact that I was in that video, that was my moment," he said of working with the hip-hop trio.
"The Exes" airs Wednesdays at 10:30 PM on TV Land.
