Dougie Baldwin (Nowhere Boys) has booked a series regular role opposite Jason Lee in What Goes Around Comes Around, CBS’ single-camera comedy pilot from Dan Kopelman and Aaron Kaplan. Written by Kopelman and directed by Tim Story, the project centers on two fortysomething parents — Kenny (Lee), a husband, father and owner of a hip music management company; and Robin — who were wild and reckless teenagers now face their worst nightmare—raising three teenagers of their own. Baldwin will play Daschel, either the smartest person in the world or the dumbest – no one’s quite sure. He’s a typical high school junior who’s only capable of thinking a maximum of 5 seconds into the future. Baldwin was the series lead on Australian TV series Nowwhere Boys, and a series regular on Upper Middle Bogan. He’s repped by LINK Entertainment and Active Artists Management.
Jon Daly (Zoolander 2) has been cast opposite Judy Greer in Fox’s untitled Laura Steinel comedy pilot (aka HR). The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, centers around Jane (Greer), the over-used and under-appreciated head of H.R. for a plastic molding plant, who is caught between trying to manage her charmingly incompetent human resources department and a new eccentric CEO who dreams of bringing the New Jersey plastics plant into the future. Daly, who appears in Zoolander 2 and the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar!, will play Gene. He can next be seen in Adult Swim Golf Classic opposite Adam Scott and indie feature The Runaround alongside Emile Hirsch and JK Simmons. Daly is repped by UTA, Principato Young Entertainment and Schreck, Rose, Dapello, Adams & Hurwitz LLP.
