Butz’s ‘Scoundrels’ contract extended

No word on future for 'Rotten' stars

Gotham hasn’t lost Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz (“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”) to Hollywood just yet.

Hot on the heels of the thesp’s sitcom deal with CBS, Butz has extended his contract with “Scoundrels” through July.

There’s still no official word on when Butz’s co-star, John Lithgow, will depart, and if he’ll be replaced by Jonathan Pryce as rumored. Sherie Rene Scott leaves the show in the spring to star in “Landscape of the Body” at the Signature, but she looks likely to return to “Scoundrels” when “Landscape” finishes its run in May.
