Ashley Tisdale Louis C.K. CBSOnetime Hellcat Ashley Tisdale has landed a lead role in CBS’ Louis C.K./Spike Feresten-produced multi-camera comedy.

Also making our latest pilot casting roundup is Mad Love‘s Tyler Labine and Kings alum Chris Egan. 

High School Musical alumna Tisdale  joins the aforementioned untitled project — which revolves around a group of young people trying to achieve their creative dreams in these tough financial times — as Petra, the beautiful, sarcastic assistant to a New York-based vintage clothing designer. Deadline first reported the news.

• Egan has landed the first role in ABC’s reimagining of the classic Disney fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. He’ll play Gorrick, a Gaston-like character who is the fiancé of the show’s embattled leading lady, Grace.

* Labine will co-star opposite Justin Kirk in NBC’s single-camera comedy Animal Kingdom. The project centers on a House-like veterinarian (Kirk) who loves animals but usually hates their owners. Labine will play a fellow vet.

  • all of these sound mildly interesting. I normally wouldn’t be that excited about Ashley Tisdale but she was pretty good in last week’s Raising Hope so maybe she can act after all.

    • Agreed about Ashley. I had really only heard OF her until I saw her on Raising Hope. Great show, she did a nice job. I would have liked to see her as a recurring character if possible.

    • He actually is pretty funny. He was great in Reaper. I actually enjoyed Sons of Tuscon too.
