CBS3's morning man Ukee Washington will hit primetime. He's hopping on a plane this afternoon to perform in a cameo on CBS sitcom "The Crazy Ones," starring Robin Williams, Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Wolk.

Washington will work alongside "Everybody Loves Raymond" Brad Garrett.

I hear that Washington got the part after a CBS exec saw him in his October appearance on "The Talk." When the opportunity to cast a local newscaster came up, the exec brought up Washington as the perfect person to play the part.

This is not Washington's first foray into fiction. He and his CBS morning team buddies appeared in zombie flick "World War Z."

The episode is set to air sometime in April. Catch the "The Crazy Ones" on Thursday at 9:30 p.m.
