Tim Meadows, Nick Thune, and Krysten Ritter Cast in NBC Comedy Pilots
Pilot season is in full swing, and NBC’s comedy selections are continuing to round out their casts. According to Deadline, SNL alum Tim Meadows has been cast in David Caspe’s pilot Marry Me starring Casey Wilson and Ken Marino. He’ll be playing Kevin, one of Annie’s (Wilson) two gay dads. Over on the pilot Old Soul, produced and co-created by Amy Poehler, actor/comedian/musician Nick Thune has signed on to star opposite Natasha Lyonne as her “roommate and friend who shares her offbeat sense of humor.” Elsewhere in NBC pilot land, Krysten Ritter has joined Adam McKay and Will Ferrell’s 1960s-set pilot Mission Control as both a star and producer. Ritter, who will be playing a female NASA employee in the 1960s in the comedy, was a regular on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 and sold a comedy pilot called My Parents Are Too F**cking Happy to NBC back in the fall.
