More recently, Bornheimer starred in the NBC sitcom Perfect Couples opposite Olivia Munn, Dave Walton, and Hayes MacArthur and in the ABC sitcom Family Tools with J.K. Simmons and Leah Remini. Both shows were cancelled in their first season. In 2016, he was a main character on the CBS sitcom Angel from Hell, which was also cancelled after one season.
His feature film credits include She's Out of My League, opposite Jay Baruchel and T.J. Miller; You Again with Odette Annable, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis, Christine Lakin, and Kristen Bell; and more recently Bachelorette opposite Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, and James Marsden.
