Chris Johnson (Vincent on South Beach) has been cast as the lead in the new ABC comedy pilot The More Things Change…. This single-camera comedy is “about a quartet of male friends who explore how male friendships endure through change.”

Leverage, a drama pilot for TNT, has cast Beth Riesgraf and Gina Bellman to star alongside Timothy Hutton. The show centers on Nate Ford (Hutton), a former insurance investigator-turned-thief who is the brains behind a team of accomplished hooligans and high-tech outlaws. (Didn’t we see something similar to this fail already? Hrmm, maybe on TNT it’ll fare a bit better! Riesgraf will play Parker, an accomplished burglar who exudes dorkiness, eccentricity and sexuality. Bellman (Jane Christie on the UK’s Coupling and Claire Jackman on Jekyll) will play Sophie, a dreadful community theater actress who doubles as a con artist.
