Dane Cook Could Be Coming to Your TV Set

Today's surprising casting news is that Dane Cook is starring in NBC's Next Caller Please pilot. You know, the one about the alpha male radio DJ forced to deal with a feminist co-host? It would be Cook's first regular role on a TV series, though he's starred in movies and made guest appearances on shows like Louie. Are you rooting for this pilot's success? (Keeping in mind that it might mean Cook has less time to do standup, whether that's a plus or minus in your book.)
