Young Broadway actor Jack Cutmore-Scott is set to co-star opposite Bonnie Dennison in Fox‘s multi-camera comedy pilot created/executive produced by Matt Hubbard and exec producer by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Directed/exec produced by Pam Fryman, the untitled comedy, which has a series penalty, is set at a women’s college that begins accepting men for the first time in its history. Cutmore-Scott, repped by Don Buchwald and Associates, Management 360 and Kate Buckley in London, will play Charlie Deckard, a wealthy, Kennedy-esque young man who joins the women at Cabot College, much to the chagrin of Thena (Dennison). He is currently filming the Untitled Matthew Vaughn feature.
Jimmy Dunn has been cast in CBS’ new pilot for The McCarthys, from Sony TV and Will Gluck’s Olive Bridge Entertainment. The comedy is being retooled as multi-camera after shooting a single-camera pilot last season. Written/co-executive produced by Brian Gallivan, The McCarthys revolves around a big, sports-crazed Irish Catholic clan in Boston and the gay son whose greatest sin is not his sexuality but his desire to spend less time with his family. Dunn will play one of the sons, the dim and a little chubby Sean McCarthy, who lives in an attic room off of his brother Gerard’s third-floor apartment. Dunn, repped by Gersh and manager Johnny Lampert, is reprising the role he played in the original pilot after retesting for it. He rejoins fellow original cast members Jack McGee and Joey McIntyre and will co-star alongside new addition Laurie Metcalf.
