Pilot Scoop: Lost's Ken Leung Joins NBC's Sarah Silverman Comedy

Get More: News, Pilots, Scoop

Lost‘s Ken Leung has found his funny bone.

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.

  • Quick question: with all due respect to Sarah (whom I like as a comedienne)…but if her show failed to garner enough of an audience on a rather niche cable channel aimed at people who love comedies, then why would they expect what’s turning out to be THE SAME SHOW to succeed on a bigger network?

  • I actually found his role on Lost to be quite comical at times. That was one of my favorite things about him on there, his sense of humor.
