Michael Landes is set to co-star on CBS’ untitled Peter Knight comedy pilot, a workplace ensemble about the young-adult employees at a high-powered venture capital firm. Landes will play one of the employees, Andrew, a handsome, cocky and annoyingly smart full-fledged workaholic. Landes, repped by CAA and Untitled, recently completed Lumpy, The Congress and 11:11:11 and did a two-month run in David Mamet’s play House Of Cards at the Almeida theater.
Beth Lacke has been cast as a regular on ABC’s comedy pilot Work It. The multicamera project, from Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen, is about out-of-work car salesmen Lee (Ben Koldyke) and Angel (Amaury Nolasco), who realize that it is a woman’s world and decide that to find work again and succeed, they must dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. Lacke, repped by Innovative and Sanders.Armstrong.Caserta, will play Lee’s hardworking wife, a nurse.
