'Happy Endings' Preview: Fred Savage, a Steak Me Home Tonight Commercial & More

Tonight's episode of 'Happy Endings' (Wed., Nov. 2, 9:30PM ET on ABC) is one I've really been looking forward to. Fred Savage -- yes, Fred Savage of 'Wonder Years' and 'Princess Bride' fame -- not only directed this episode but also stepped in front of the cameras for a quick cameo playing himself. I visited the 'Happy' set while they were shooting this episode, titled 'Lying Around,' which finds Savage randomly interrupting a date that Alex ( Elisha Cuthbert ) is on. We'll also see Dave ( Zachary Knighton ) taking his food truck to the next level. Yep, that's right, we're talking about a Steak Me Home Tonight commercial. Only problem? Dave is horrible on camera, and Max ( Adam Pally ) might not be that great behind the camera either. (Couldn't they have gone super meta and had Savage direct the commercial within the show, too?)
