So I’m back from LA, where I not only had the greatest salad of my life (a spicy one!), but also had had a brilliant time meeting actors for the sitcom… and I’m delighted to say, after a thorough shakedown of the entire country, here’s our lovely cast so far…

Mr Tony Hale (Arrested Development) plays my best friend… Ms. Laura Prepon (That 70s Show) takes on the toughest role of her life by playing my wife… and Mr Matt Letscher (Eli Stone) plays an odd man named Bob who likes smoothies.

And… directing is Andy Ackerman, a kind and gentle man, who directed 90 episodes of Seinfeld, as well as shows like Frasier and Cheers. I’m properly thrilled. Though now the pressure is on…

    This is the most exciting news I’ve heard in ages. You and Tony Hale!

    There are no words.

    So I guess this comment has to end here. But hooray.

    Great news!
    I do love that 70’s Show.
    Half way through the last series on dvd right now. Laura Prepon is a good choice I think.

    Worked on Awkward pilot and was a great experience. Danny Wallace, great spirit to be around and a real pro.Has something, special- All the actors were just dreams to work with, plus the Director Andy, a true gift. Waiting to hear if it is a go- really tough. Would love to repeat the experience.
