Three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub has his eye on his next TV venture.
The former Monk star has joined the cast of CBS’ now-untitled comedy pilot (formerly Ex-Men) from How I Met Your Mother executive producer Rob Greenberg, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The half-hour project centers on a charming young man (played by Paranormal Activity 3‘s Chris Smith) who, after being left at the altar by his fiancée, moves into a short-term housing complex and makes unlikely friends with a group of divorced men.
Shalhoub — who earned his Emmys as well as a Golden Globe during Monk‘s lengthy run on USA Network — will play Frank, a four-time divorcé who still fancies himself a ladies man and dwells in the complex’s bachelor pad.
As previously reported, Kal Penn (House) also stars as a once-married neighbor who was caught having an affair.Follow @MegMasters
