While you were sleeping, "Nathan" got himself a father.

Bill Pullman has been cast in NBC's sitcom pilot "Nathan vs. Nurture," joining the cast as star Jay Harrington's father. (Bill Pullman is old enough to have a son Jay Harrington's age? Apparently — Pullman was born in 1953, while Harrington in 1971.)

On "Nathan vs. Nurture," Harrington was just cast as Nathan, a heart
surgeon who discovers his biological parents (including Pullman) — and his underachieving
siblings.

David Guarascio and Moses Port are behind the sitcom, while James Burrows is directing. Sony Pictures TV is the studio

Pullman starred in NBC's short-lived "Revelations," and also guested on "Law & Order: SVU." His recent film credits include "Bottle Shock."
