The lead role in the new CBS comedy pilot from former “How I Met Your Mother” exec producer Rob Greenberg has been given to a relative newcomer, TVLine.com reports.
Landing the lead in “Ex-Men” is Chris Smith, who is known mainly for the movie "Paranormal 3" and for guest roles on "30 Rock" and “The Office." He also had short runs on the TV series “Mayne Street” and “Fake It Til You Make It.”
“Ex-Men” will focus on an under-30 guy who’s left at the altar by the woman he loves and re-evaluates his life. That involves a short-term lease in an apartment complex where a bunch of older, wiser and divorced guys proceed to become his friends and mentors.
