Actor and Comedian Jeff Garlin will serve as the special Celebrity Guest of Honor for the next edition of Hockey Night in LA. He'll be in attendance on Saturday, December 8, when the LA Kings host the Vegas Golden Knights at STAPLES Center at 1 p.m.
The Kings, in conjunction with FOX Sports West, launched Hockey Night in LA, a series of special weekend games in which the club's broadcasts and activations in and around STAPLES Center have a different feel.
The special series includes celebrity guests, debate-themed programming and outdoor fan fests featuring live music acts. On the ice, the players will wear the recently-debuted silver jerseys.
Garlin's talent encompasses writing, producing, directing, acting and performing stand-up comedy. He is known as the Executive Producer and co-star of the critically acclaimed "Curb Your Enthusiasm," which returned to HBO last year after a six-year hiatus.
As Executive Producer, Garlin was nominated for an Emmy Award for "Best Comedy" for their ninth season. The show will return for a highly anticipated tenth season next year. He is also known as the patriarch Murray Goldberg on ABC's "The Goldbergs," which is currently in its sixth season.
Garlin next returns to the Toy Story franchise, reprising his role as Buttercup in "Toy Story 4," which hits theaters next summer. He also recently co-wrote, directed, and starred in "Handsome," the first Netflix murder mystery.
The Hockey Night in LA series kicked off on November 3 with actor Eric Stonestreet, the co-star of Modern Family.
In subsequent Saturdays, the Kings and FOX Sports West have featured Kevin Ryder - the co-host of KROQ's popular Kevin & Bean morning radio program - and hockey pioneer/Hall of Famer Willie O'Ree.
