Michael's new show - free tickets & casting news! [Apr. 4th, 2009|11:56 am]
tasabian
There will be a live taping of Michael's new tv show on Wednesday, April 22 at 6pm. Taping is in Culver City, California and free tickets can be reserved here:
http://www.tvtickets.com/pilots.htm

It would be awesome if a Californian f-listie could go and give us the scoop!



We already know that Nick D'Agosto is playing Michael's younger brother. I liked Nick as Hunter on The Office; less keen on his role on Heroes:


Nick's girlfriend will be played by Allison Munn. Anyone remember her from "One Tree Hill?" I've never seen her in anything:


Leslie Bibb is playing an unspecified role. Michael's wife? I have mixed feelings about her casting. I loved "Popular" but she very much played the "straight" role, with most of the humour coming from cast mates. How will she be in a comic role?


Saving the best for last! The amazing John Michael Higgins (Arrested Development, Christopher Guest movies!) is in the cast too. Playing Michael's eldest brother? He is never less than awesome and funny!

Did you see "Best in Show"? John Michael Higgins plays the high-camp boyfriend of Michael McKean. He's also a folk singer in Mighty Wind.

Leslie Bibb plays the reporter/fling in "Iron Man"

Good thing Michael's in this show because from the rest of the cast, I'd ignore it. lol Only one I know if Nick because of Heroes and he was pretty creepy as West. :P

Since he seems to be playing the leading role, he better have some hitherto untapped comic talents!

Eeee! Someone must go! I need Michael-news!

The only one that I know is the guy from Heroes, though the last guy looks a bit familiar as well.

John Michael Higgins is the comic character actor Supreme! He and Michael will be amazing together,

As to the rest.....I guess we'll have to wait and see. Sometimes they recast after the pilot, based on audience response.

Oh BUG DUNG, I hate living in New Mexico where nothing ever happens!

This is great news though because it means that there is indeed a pilot, and that it looks like it's moving along! YAY!!!

I hope there are review blogs posted afterwards! I envy the Californians - wouldn't it be amazing to see Michael onstage?

Any idea of which network the show will be on?
NBC!

Does this mean it will be broadcasted in September?
If the pilot is picked up (which will depend on audience and network reaction.)

I am not pleased at all with this latest season of Smallville :(
It's not the same without Lex :(
