Roger Bart is the man for ABC

'Young' Broadway actor cast in untitled pilot

Roger Bart has joined the cast of the untitled ABC pilot penned by David Hemingson for 20th Century Fox TV.

Project is described as a light drama set in an upscale law firm in Los Angeles. Bart will play one of the firm’s partners, Cliff, a volatile but likable character whose wife also works at the firm.

Ensembler’s cast includes Norbert Leo Butz, Matthew Long and Ben Lawson. Pilot begins lensing next month.

Bart, now starring on Broadway in the Mel Brooks tuner “Young Frankenstein,” has been on the bigscreen in such recent pics as “American Gangster” and “Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo.” His TV credits include a stint on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” and the Sci Fi Channel mini “The Lost Room.”

Scribe Hemingson comes from a laffer background. He spent the past season working 20th’s CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother.” He’s also penned segs for Fox comedies “American Dad” and “Kitchen Confidential.”
