Laura PreponIn January, we told you folks about one of Chelsea Handler’s many projects, a pilot for NBC inspired by her own exploits from her 20s as told in Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.

And the ball’s started rolling on the casting front for that show: Laura Prepon, most known for her role on That 70’s Show, will play the lead role, a single cocktail waitress who is rather up front about her love for sex and drinking.

No word yet on the other cast members, but I think it’s safe to say that Ashton Kutcher will not be involved.

In other Handler news, the first peak at her Larry Sanders Show-esque show After Lately, which follows the comedian and her crew behind the scenes of Chelsea Lately, has been released. Let’s check it out!
