David Arquette The Smart OneProving he’s no dummy, David Arquette has joined the cast of The Smart One, ABC’s red hot comedy pilot starring Portia de Rossi and Malin Akerman as dueling sisters.

The single-camera project, which counts Samantha Who? co-creator Donald Todd and De Rossi’s real-life spouse Ellen DeGeneres among its executive producers, centers polar opposite siblings Jude (“The Smart One,” played by De Rossi) and Candy (“The Dumb One,” played by Akerman).

Arquette will play Candy’s husband, Buddy. The cast also includes Jean Smart as the duo’s mom.

  • THIS I’m excited for. I really love Portia, Malin, and Jean Smart. But I also like David Arquette and I feel like this is one of those things that could be terrible or really good. But the cast is phenomenal.

  • Hmm, not sure if this will just be another flop. Although I did enjoy David when he was on his short-lived ABC sitcom, “In Case of Emergency” 5 years ago.

  • This will either be phenomenal or awful. I really can’t see it going anywhere in the middle
