Truth Be Told star Tone Bell has been cast opposite Nicholas Braun and Jane Levy in My Time/Your Time, CBS’ hybrid comedy pilot from Hilary Winston and How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, which is currently filming.
The late addition of Bell stems from a last-minute tweak the producers made, combining two supporting series regular characters in the original script — cast with Langston Kerman and Utkarsh Ambudkar — into one new character, played by Bell. As a result of the change, Ambudkar and Kerman are no longer in the pilot.
Bell is cast as a guest star in My Time/Your Time because he is already a regular on another comedy pilot, NBC’s Good Fortune (though this appears to be a relatively safe second position based on early pilot buzz I’m hearing).
Based on the web series 7P/10E by Avital Ash, My Time/Your Time, written by Winston and directed by Pam Fryman, chronicles the relationship of a young couple — Marla (Levy) and Wade (Braun) — as they begin dating long distance.
Ambudkar was to play Jay, Wade’s friend and co-worker who looks like a slacker/surfer dude on the surface but is secretly ambitious. Kerman was to play another friend of Wades, Parker. He and Wade (Braun) were childhood buddies while growing up in the Midwest, and now they’re each other’s closest friend in L.A.
Bell, who also has been recurring on The Flash, is repped by Innovative Artists, Black Box Management and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller.
