Several comedians have been cast in promising NBC comedy pilots. Nick Thune will play the male lead opposite Orange Is The New Black star Natasha Lyonne in the Amy Poehler-produced Old Soul. Thune will play the roommate and friend of Nadia (Lyonne), a former wild child who has a business caring for the elderly.
Saturday Night Live alum Tim Meadows has been cast in Marry Me, a single-camera comedy pilot about Annie (Casey Wilson) and Jake (Ken Marino) after they get engaged and realize that it’s a lot harder than it looks. Meadows will play Kevin, one of Annie’s two gay dads.
Both Thune and Meadows were recently announced as performers in the upcoming SXSW Comedy 2014 festival.
