TVLine Items: Justin Long Leads ABC Pilot, Colbert's Late Launch & More

Justin Long Irreversible

ABC is replacing David Schwimmer with Justin Long.

The New Girl and Mom actor will star in the network’s comedy pilot Irreversible, which previously featured the Friends alum in the lead role, our sister site Deadline reports.

The single-cam project — which didn’t get a series pickup for the 2014-2015 season — centers around Andy (played by Long) and Sarah, a somewhat eccentric, self-absorbed couple, and their trials and tribulations — most of which they bring upon themselves.
