Pilot Scoop: Lost's Ken Leung Joins NBC's Sarah Silverman Comedy
The mostly-dramatic actor has joined the cast of NBC’s Untitled Sarah Silverman Project, a sitcom pilot starring Silverman and based on her own experiences as a woman readjusting to the single life after a decade-long live-in relationship.
Leung will play a neighbor (and love interest) of Silverman’s character, a shut-in who spends most of his time on his couch, wrapped in a blanket and watching TV.
Silverman has also tapped comedienne Tig Notaro to basically play the same version of herself that she did on Comedy Central’s The Sarah Silverman Program.
The ensemble also includes fellow Sarah Silverman Program fixture Harris Wittels and comic actress June Diane Raphael.
