How to Make It in America's Luis Guzman has found his next gig.

The actor, who played Cam's (Victor Rasuk) cousin on the recently canceled HBO series, has joined ABC's comedy pilot Counter Culture, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
 
Revolving around three aging sisters who run their West Texas family diner together, Everybody Loves Raymond's Doris Roberts and A Gifted Man's Margo Martindale are set as two of the three leads. Guzman will play the cook at the diner.

Guzman co-starred on HBO's How to Make It In America, which was canceled in December following the conclusion of its second season. His co-star, Bryan Greenberg, has also boarded a pilot this season, landing in CBS' Greg Malins/Greg Berlanti comedy opposite Joanna Garcia Swisher.

Guzman is repped by Gersh.
