Fox recasts ‘A.U.S.A.’ pilot

McClintock reunites with 'Felicity' thesp in laffer

Eddie McClintock (“The Sweetest Thing”) has landed a role opposite Scott Foley in the 20th Century Fox/NBC Studios pilot “A.U.S.A.”

He replaces Adam Rothenberg in the sitcom as Owen, Foley’s bohemian roommate.

Gig reunites the thesps, who previously worked together on “Felicity” — McClintock had a recurring role as Foley’s brother.

Laffer is being reshot and retooled in hopes of a formal pickup from NBC. Originally a single-cam project, skein will now follow traditional multi-cam, live audience sitcom format. Concept remains the same, with the show revolving around the professional and personal misadventures of a young lawyer (Foley) just starting his career as a prosecutor in the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Richard Appel (“King of the Hill”) is the exec producer of “A.U.S.A.”

McClintock, who appeared last May in the “Friends” cliffhanger finale, as a love interest of Lisa Kudrow’s character, will next be seen in Steven Soderbergh’s “Full Frontal.” While no deal is set, a return to the “Friends” set this fall is a possibility.

He was repped in the deal by the Paul Kohner Agency and manager Ric Beddingfield.
