Matt Cook (Clipped, The Comeback) and Grace Kaufman (Bubble Guppies, Clarence) have joined the cast of CBS comedy pilot the Untitled LeBlanc Filgos Project, written by Jeff and Jackie Filgo. The project stars Matt LeBlanc as a contractor who learns that raising his kids is more challenging than expected when his wife goes back to work.
Cook will play Lowell, a sweet, offbeat intellectual dad at Adam’s (LeBlanc) school who is drawn to his “alpha male” vibe. Kaufman will play Kate, Adam and Andi’s (not yet cast) oldest child, a bright but hormonal teenage girl who initially is delighted when Adam takes over as the main caregiver of their family. She quickly learns that if she thinks Adam is going to be the pushover she expected, she has another think coming. Cook is repped by Innovative Artists, Working Entertainment and attorneys Cindy Farrelly Gesner and Jamie Feldman. Kaufman is repped by CESD and manager Robin Miners.
