Kim Kardashian to make sitcom debut on Allen's new show

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is to make her sitcom debut on Tim Allen's new show Last Man Standing.

The socialite will follow in the footsteps of singer Nick Jonas, who played a deadbeat dad in the series over Christmas (11).

Kardashian, who has previously appeared in CSI: NY, won't have to stretch her acting talents too much - she'll be playing herself in an episode scheduled to air in February (12).

Comedy aside, the reality TV star is getting serious about her acting career after landing a lead role in director Tyler Perry's new movie The Marriage Counsellor last year (11).
