Will Arnett Divorce: Actor Plays Divorcé In New Show 'The Millers'

Is Will Arnett's latest leading role a case of art imitating life?

In CBS' new sitcom "The Millers," which premiers October 3, twice-divorced Arnett plays Jack, a recently divorced reporter who has been hiding his split from his parents. When Jack's parents find out about the divorce, they decide to split up as well.

"It's a show about a family that is kind of going through growing pains at a later stage," Arnett said in a preview video for the show. (Watch the video above for more.)

Arnett's separation from comedian Amy Poehler in 2012 shocked fans, who were openly upset about the pair's split. Arnett was also married to actress Penelope Ann Miller from December 1994 to January 1995.
