30 Rock alum Scott Adsit has been cast as Sam Adams in AMC’s half-hour comedy pilot We Hate Paul Revere. Written, executive produced and starring Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner, the story revolves around two brothers living in Colonial Boston who are not fans of local industrialist and activist Paul Revere (Ron Livingston). Adsit, repped by APA and Truhett/Garcia Management, recently wrapped Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent Of Van Wyck Street.
Sibylla Deen (Tyrant) and Kylie Bunbury (Twisted) have joined the cast of Spike TV’s Tut. The six-hour event series centers on Tutankhamun, aka King Tut (who reigned c. 1333 to 1323 BC), the youngest Pharaoh to rule Ancient Egypt, whose famous golden sarcophagus has become one of the symbols of the ancient civilization. Deen, repped by Alissa Feldman at Authentic Talent & Literary Management, will play Anke, Tut’s sister and wife; and Bunbury, repped by ICM Partners, Principal and Gang Tyre, will play Suhad.
