* Simmons has joined ABC’s multi-camera comedy Saint Francis, which stars Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) as a blue-collar, no-nonsense Long Island cop and family man who butts heads with the modern, liberal world when his sister gets pregnant out of wedlock. Simmons will co-star as his business partner at the bar they own.
* The ABC laugher Irreversible has tapped sketch comedy multitasker Jessica Knappett (The Inbetweeners Movie) as David Schwimmer’s leading lady. The project revolves around Andy (Schwimmer) and Sarah (Knappett), a somewhat eccentric, self-absorbed couple, and their trials and tribulations — most of which they bring upon themselves.
* Brian F. O’Byrne (FlashForward) has boarded the ABC drama Exposed about an investigative journalist who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, including making questionable alliances. O’Byrne will portray a very powerful, mysterious man who works for the Pentagon.Follow @VladaGelman
