A CBS comedy pilot has tapped a "Sons of Tucson" star to play the main character’s best friend, the Hollywood Reporter says.
The star is Tyler Labine. The job comes after Labine initially turned down the role as his midseason series "Sons of Tucson" hadn’t yet aired.
But after "Tucson" underperformed on Fox, where it airs after the network’s animated series, Labine took the role on the CBS comedy pilot "True Love" when he was offered it again. He’s replacing Dan Fogler, who was earlier cast as the best friend of Henry, played by Jason Biggs. The Reporter says Labine’s casting is in second position to "Tucson."
