Lovitz to broadcast ‘NewsRadio’

Thesp may fill Hartman void, Warburton considered

“NewsRadio” executive producers have targeted Jon Lovitz as their top choice to join the sitcom cast next season, filling a void left by the death of actor Phil Hartman, sources said. Lovitz and Hartman were close friends, and Lovitz had guest starred on “NewsRadio” in the past. His reps said he’s been approached, but has made no decision on whether to join the cast. If he doesn’t, “NewsRadio” producers also have their eye on Patrick Warburton, who played Elaine’s boyfriend on “Seinfeld.”
