NBC's Michael J. Fox Comedy Enlists 'Easy A' Actress (Exclusive)
Juliette Goglia will play Mike's daughter on the comedy co-starring Betsy Brandt of "Breaking Bad."
NBC's Michael J. Fox comedy is rounding out its cast.
The upcoming comedy series inspired by the life of the former Family Ties actor has added Juliette Goglia to its central family, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
NBC ordered 22 episodes of the untitled single-camera comedy starring Fox as a husband and father of three from New York City dealing with family, career and challenges -- including Parkinson's disease. Fox will play Mike Burnaby, a former lead anchor at a local station in New York City who decides to go back to work after Parkinson's forced him to take time off.
Goglia, who played a young Emma Stone in Easy A -- which was directed and produced by Will Gluck, the exec producer and director on the Fox comedy -- will play Eve, Mike's middle child, who is whip-smart but not book-smart and likes to game the system.
The actress, whose credits include The Finder, Private Practice and Joan of Arcadia, joins a cast that includes Breaking Bad's Betsy Brandt as Mike's wife; Wonderfalls' Katie Finneran as Leigh, Mike's younger sister; Conor Romero (American Gangster) as Ian, Mike's teenage son; and newcomer Jack Gore, who will play Graham, Mike's youngest son. Treme's Wendell Pierce will play Harris Green, Mike's close friend and old boss at WNBC's 5 O'Clock News.
Goglia is repped by CESD, Industry Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.
Still to be cast is Fox's sweet executive producer.
