James Caan is set for a co-starring role opposite Kevin Connolly and Vanessa Williams in Fox’s multi-camera/hybrid pilot Fantasy Life, written by Tim McAuliffe based on the memoir by one of U.S.’ top fantasy experts, ESPN’s Matthew Berry. When hard-working Mitch (Connolly) lands his ultimate dream job hosting a fantasy football show, he’s forced to navigate office politics while becoming the star he never thought he could be. Caan plays the tough and humorless Chuck, an ex-legendary football player/coach who’s on Mitch’s new team working on Fox’s fantasy football league show. Chuck doesn’t get fantasy football since he played real football and suffered real pain, however, Mitch eventually impresses him, and the former football star is willing to work with him. Williams plays Mitch’s new boss. The pilot reunites Caan with 20th TV after starring in the studio’s ABC comedy series Back In the Game.
