Scoop: 24's Mary Lynn Rajskub Joins ABC's Megan Hilty Comedy Pilot as... Greg Grunberg's Twin?

Californication Cast Mary Lynn Rajskub

24 vet Mary Lynn Rajskub has joined the cast of ABC’s Untitled Judah Miller Project in a series-regular role, TVLine has confirmed.

The single-camera project centers on a Tony Award-winning mother (Smash‘s Megan Hilty) and a risk-averse, cerebral father (Heroes‘ Greg Grunberg) who are blessed with a son who is a natural-born competitive athlete. They are forced outside their parental comfort zones and into the high-octane world of youth sports.

Rajskub will play Susie, the self-serving and opportunistic twin sister of Grunberg’s Gary.

The cast also includes Marissa Jaret Winokur (AKA Miller’s real-life wife) as Hilty’s soccer-mom foil.

Miller, whose credits include American Dad! and King of the Hill, penned the script and will serve as an EP.

  2. Chris says:

    Grunberg AND Rajskub? Oh yeah, I’m sold.

  3. Tran says:

    Can’t believe Chloe O’Brian from 24 is teaming up with Matt Parkman from Heroes.

  4. TinLV says:

    I like the cast, but the show’s premise doesn’t grab me. We’ll see.

  5. Amanda says:

    Why the italics? Not all twins are identical!

    For those of you who really only know Mary Lynn Rajskub from 24 ought to know that she is also a stand up comic and has a long history of comedy performance dating all the was back to Mr. Show and The Larry Sanders Show.

    How’s this for irony: Before getting her gig on 24, Rajskub was in stand-up comedy. She got her gig on 24, becoming far more widely known for a dramatic role, and now she’s returning to doing comedy……and it just doesn’t feel right.
