Matt Albie and Danny Tripp, Together Again: Bradley Whitford Is Coming to 'Go On' for a 'Studio 60' Reunion

Bradley Whitford, who starred with Matthew Perry on Aaron Sorkin's short-lived but much-loved backstage SNL(ish) drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, is guest starring on an upcoming episode of Perry's current series Go On, the actor revealed on Twitter yesterday. Little is known about Whitford's character on the show, besides the fact that he'll be sharing a hot tub with Perry's character at some point, but it'll just be nice for Studio 60 die-hards to see the guys who played Important Comedy Writers Matt Albie and Bradley Whitford together again. Beware, writers of Go On, if the Bradley Whitford episode doesn't contain a ton of Studio 60 [...]

Trade Roundup: Patton Oswalt, Melissa McCarthy, Parks & Recreation

Patton Oswalt may star with Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty as "Todd, a friendly eHarmony counselor." This is the role he was born to play, ladies and gentlemen.

CBS has picked up Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone's 37-year-old-living-at-home sitcom, just a few weeks after ordering the script. They must've thrown a lotta good "grown man walking in on his parents having sex" jokes in there!

'SNL' Alum Michaela Watkins Joins Bradley Whitford's ABC Pilot 'Trophy Wife'

Talented ex-SNL-er Michaela Watkins just landed a new gig on the ABC pilot Trophy Wife, starring Malin Åkerman and Bradley Whitford, according to Deadline. We reported yesterday that the show follows Åkerman falling in love with Whitford, only to find herself constantly dealing with his kids and ex-wives. Marcia Gay Harden will play one of the ex-wives and Michaela Watkins will play the other. Watkins was unceremoniously let go from SNL after the 2008-09 season, her first, along with the also-amazing Casey Wilson. Hopefully, Trophy Wife will do for Michaela Watkins what fellow ABC comedy Happy Endings has done for Casey Wilson.

Ben Stiller, Bonnie Hunt, and Bradley Whitford All Working on ABC Comedies

Information on two new ABC sitcoms came in over the weekend, from several entertainment industry veterans. ABC bought a new pilot called compliKATEd from producer Ben Stiller (via his company Red Hour Productions) and starring Bonnie Hunt, according to Deadline. Hunt will write the ensemble comedy, centered around a confident insecure woman with a complex life, with her frequent collaborator Don Lake, a regular in Christopher Guest's movies. If the show gets picked up, it'll mark Bonnie Hunt's first primetime gig since Life with Bonnie, which also aired on ABC from 2002 to 2004.

Also at ABC, Bradley Whitford and Marcia Gay Harden are being cast in a [...]
