Sara Rue Joins NBC's Jimmy Fallon Comedy Pilot (Exclusive)
She'll guest star in the project, which is in second position to ABC's Reba McEntire comedy pilot "Malibu Country."
Sara Rue has landed her second gig this pilot season.
The former Popular and Less Than Perfect star has been tapped to guest star in NBC's Jimmy Fallon comedy pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
The multicamera comedy revolves around three thirtysomething guys (Jesse Bradford, Anthony Anderson and Zach Cregger) who enjoy the adventures of parenting despite the fact that they haven't grown up themselves.
In the project, currently titled Guys With Kids, Rue will play Sheila, the ex-wife of Bradford's character, described as an attractive, controlling, ambitious perfectionist divorce attorney who shares custody of their 9-month-old son.
Rue replaces the previously cast Courtney Henggeler in the pilot.
Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Tempestt Bledsoe co-star in the Universal Television project. Charlie Grandy will write and executive produce the comedy alongside Fallon, Amy Ozols, Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz. Scott Ellis will direct the pilot.
For Rue, the Fallon comedy is in second position to ABC's comedy pilot Malibu Country, starring Reba McEntire as a woman who moves from Nashville to Malibu with her mother and three kids after she finds her rock star husband cheating on her. Rue will play Kim, Reba's new neighbor.
The actress is repped by APA, Alan David and attorney Mark Wetzstein.
