The 34-year-old actor will play Kenan Monroe, a guy who leaves his fast-paced New York life to move in with his suburban in-laws, only to face three generations of problems.
Before making his debut on SNL back in 2003, Thompson was best known for his roles in the sketch comedy series All That, Kenan & Kel and Good Burger, among other projects.
