David Harewood can start picturing himself in Selfie — the Homeland alum just landed a role in the ABC comedy pilot.
Penned by Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek, the single-camera project follows Eliza Dooley (Doctor Who‘s Karen Gillan), a self-obsessed twentysomething who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. After suffering a very public, very humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media “followers” than she ever imagined… but for all the wrong reasons. Eliza then enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.
Harewood will play Sam, the president of the company where Eliza works. He’s rich, confident, a bit eccentric and very involved in his employee’s lives.
