John Larroquette Me Myself I Cast Pilot CBS

John Larroquette Joins Bobby Moynihan in CBS Comedy Pilot Me, Myself & I

Bobby Moynihan has seen his future, and it is John Larroquette.

Larroquette (The Librarians) has signed on to play an older version of the same character played by Moynihan in CBS’ single-camera comedy Me, Myself & I, our sister site Deadline reports.

The potential series examines the life of Alex Riley over a 50-year span, focusing on three distinct periods — as a 14-year-old in 1991, a 40-year-old in present day, and a 65-year-old in 2042.

Larroquette’s Alex — the 65-year-old — is newly retired, successful in the ways he wanted to be and looking to have a fulfilling next few decades. Moynihan will play Alex in present day, where he’s an inventor with an eye on the future but looking to the past for inspirations.

Mandell Maughan (House of Lies) also has joined the cast.

If Me, Myself & I is ordered to series, the schedule will allow Larroquette to continue being a series regular on The Librarians.

The Emmy-winning Larroquette’s TV credits include Night CourtThe John Larroquette ShowBoston Legal and The Practice.

    Both he and Mandell Maughan are fantastic actors. This show is shaping up great, and I hope the writing matches the on-camera talent.

    Good casting to play the older version of the character on the show. Glad John will still continue to be on The Librarians if the show gets pickup to series.

    I love Bobby Moynihan, so I’m interested to see how this works, and whether he’s the main timeline, or if they’re all equal.
