About the Show
Rules of Engagement is a half-hour comedy about the different phases of male/female relationships, as seen through the eyes of an engaged couple, Adam (Oliver Hudson) and Jennifer (Bianca Kajlich), a long-time married pair, Jeff (Patrick Warburton) and Audrey (Megyn Price), and a single guy on the prowl, Russell (David Spade). As they find out, the often confusing stages of a relationship can seem like being on a roller coaster. People can describe them to you, but to really know what it’s like you have to take a ride for yourself and learn from your repeated mistakes.

Grant Gustin was the first person to audition for the role of “Barry Allen/The Flash” on Arrow—and he had to pass a chemistry test. Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity) was brought in to read with Grant—after which “it was like a done deal,” EP Andrew Kreisberg tells TVLine. “We wanted to make sure he didn’t seem like jailbait next to her,” he joked. The baby-faced Gustin is 33, and Rickards is 32. Barry and Felicity’s mutual attraction continues on this week’s midseason finale.
