Alan Tudyk is set to star in ABC's untitled Kohan/Mutchnick comedy pilot, while Andrea Parker and newcomer Silvana Arias have joined Bernie Mac's Fox series "Starting Under."

Additionally, Josh Dean, Vanessa Lengies and Hayes MacArthur have been cast in ABC's comedy pilot "This Might Hurt," and Harry Lennix has joined the Fox drama "Dollhouse."

The untitled Kohan/Mutchick comedy, from Warner Bros. TV, centers on two men -- one straight, one gay (Tudyk) -- who are lifelong best friends and business partners.

Tudyk, who recently starred in NBC's untitled Luke Reiter pilot and the features "3:10 to Yuma" and "Knocked Up," is repped by Endeavor and manager Geordie Frey.

"Under," from WBTV, stars Mac as a larger-than-life man who, after a divorce, has to live with and work for his twentysomething son, Bernard (Bert Belasco).

Parker is set to play Jada, a single, hard-working, blue-collar employee of Bernard's who develops an interestingly complicated relationship with him.

Arias will play Rosa, a Guadalajara native who clashes with Mac when he accuses her -- accurately -- of being an illegal immigrant.

APA-repped Parker is best known for her roles on NBC's "The Pretender" and ABC's "Less Than Perfect."

Silvana ("Passions") began her career in the Latin market, starring on several Telemundo shows before making the move to Los Angeles. She is repped by Sovereign Talent Agency and Gilbertson Entertainment.

"Hurt," from 20th TV, is a semiscripted comedy set at a medical practice run by a fiftysomething pediatrician and his brainy internist son (Dean) and an OBGYN.

Lengies will play Lily, the new receptionist at the clinic who is sweet, naive and disarmingly sincere.

MacArthur ("The Game Plan") has signed on as Reid, a handsome, slightly dim-bulb nurse who runs a secret gambling operation out of his nursing station.

Dean, star of Fox's comedy "Free Ride," recently wrapped the indie film "Young People F***ing." He is repped by Gersh and manager Jerry Silverhardt.

Lengies ("American Dreams") is repped by Gersh and the Burstein Co.

"Dollhouse," from 20th TV, revolves around a group of young men and women, aka Dolls, who are imprinted with different personalities.

Lennix ("24") is set to play Boyd, an ex-cop who serves as Echo's (Eliza Dushku) bodyguard.

WHISPER


In other Dollhouse news... a familiar face has been casted as Dr. Claire Saunders.... Amy Acker! Yes, we'll be seeing our very own Fred/Illyria teamed back up with Joss.

Quote:

Hi campers. We're having the read-through of the script today. Why would I be nervous? YOU'RE nervous! Anyhoo, I just couldn't resist letting you know that the recurring roles have actually been cast for some time now. I'm shocked that any part of our casting process hasn't been leaked somehow. And though I'm a fan of secrets, I'll give you the last two pieces of this particular puzzle:

November (who will be recurring but does not appear in the pilot) will be played by the luminous Miracle Laurie.

Dr. Claire Saunders will be played by... yet another name I'm gonna have trouble remembering how to spell... Amy Acker.

All in all, pound for pound, soup to nuts, man vs beast, it's a pretty amazing ensemble. I'm not sure how I landed this troupe, but rest assured I'm gonna write bestest good word for talkacting to them yes! They're in good hands.

Onward... to adventure! -j.
