Men At Work alum Michael Cassidy has been cast in a lead role opposite Wyatt Cenac in TBS comedy pilot The Group. He will play Jonathan Walsh, the charismatic and wildly successful young CEO of Walsh Media, a massive conglomerate. While Jonathan strives to appear like a down-to-earth guy, he is infatuated with status and the trappings of success. He is Wyatt’s boss and also considers himself to be Wyatt’s close friend.
The Group — from Greg Daniels, writer David Jenkins, Conan O’Brien’s Conaco and Warner Horizon TV — is about a support group for people who think they have been abducted by aliens. Shooting begins next month in Toronto.
Cassidy, repped by Gersh, Principal Entertainment LA and Sandy Erickson, next will be seen in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. He also appears in indie Night Of The Living Deb and recurs on Syfy’s The Magicians.
