Silverman has been cast to co-star in the upcoming ABC made-for-TV movie “These Old Broads” as the son of a washed-up actress.

Shirley MacLaine is in talks to star as Silverman’s mom, while Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds and Joan Collins are also close to signing on to the telepic.

“These Old Broads” was written by Reynolds’ daughter, Carrie Fisher, along with Elaine Pope. Laurence Mark and Ilene Berg will exec produce.

In the film, Silverman’s character, a documentary filmmaker, is hired by a network to direct and produce a TV special reuniting his mother and two other legendary actresses from the 1950s.

Silverman, who starred in the two-year NBC sitcom “The Single Guy” in the mid-1990s, most recently wrapped production on the indie film “The Medicine Show,” with Natasha Gregson Wagner. He has also completed the Jon Favreau film “Made,” starring alongside Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Famke Janssen and Sean “Puffy” Combs.

Silverman’s other TV credits include the recent TV films “The Inspectors” and “The Inspectors 2: A Shred of Evidence.” He is repped by manager Erwin More of Talent Entertainment Group and Steven Levy and David Rose at Innovative Artists.
