Jessalyn Gilsig has joined NBC's one-hour pilot "Backyards and Bullets" as a regular, and John Cho has been tapped for a multiepisode arc on Fox's comedy series " 'Til Death."

"Bullets," from Sony Pictures TV and Pariah, revolves around a suburban Neighborhood Watch group gone awry. Gilsig will play the wife of the character played by Mathew St. Patrick.

Gilsig, who co-starred on such series as "Nip/Tuck" and "Boston Public," most recently recurred on NBC's "Heroes" as Claire's (Hayden Panettiere) fire-starter birth mother and co-starred on the Fox drama pilot "The Apostles."

The actress, who next will be seen in the remake of "Prom Night," is repped by SDB Partners and Framework Entertainment.

On " 'Til Death," also from SPT, Cho will play the arch nemesis to Jeff Woodcock (Eddie Kaye Thomas). In three episodes, Cho will play the principal of a prestigious private school who squares off with Woodcock, the public school's vice principal.

Cho is best known for starring opposite Kal Penn in the feature "Harold & Kumar" and its upcoming sequel.

Both Cho and Penn will appear on Fox next season. Penn has been tapped as a recurring on the network's hit drama "House."

Cho, who most recently co-starred on CBS' comedy pilot "Up All Night," is repped by the Gersh Agency and Principato-Young.
