Dustin Ybarra has landed the other lead opposite John Leguizamo in ABC’s multicamera comedy pilot Only Fools And Horses. Based on the British format, the multicamera comedy chronicles the misadventures of two streetwise brothers, Del (Leguizamo) and Rodney (Ybarra), and their aging grandfather as they concoct outrageous, morally questionable get-rich-quick schemes in their quest to become millionaires. Ybarra is with CAA and Andrew Tetenbaum Management.
The Killing‘s Katie Findlay and Ellen Wong have joined just-cast AnnaSophia Robb in the CW pilot Carrie Diaries. The project, based on Candace Bushnell’s novel, chronicles Carrie Bradshaw’s (Robb) coming of age in the 1980s when she asks her first questions about love, sex, friendship and family while exploring the worlds of high school and Manhattan. Wong will play Jill “The Mouse” Thompson, Carrie’s best friend in high school who is pragmatic, bright and super loyal. Findlay, repped by Thruline and agent Russ Mortensen, will play Maggie Landers, Carrie’s oldest friend, a townie and the daughter of the police chief who has little ambition to leave her town, mostly because she has no idea what she would be leaving for.
