James D'Arcy joins CBS' 'Eastmans' family

Nick Kroll, Nora Zehetner, Scott Porter also land pilot roles

James D'Arcy has been tapped to star on CBS' drama pilot "The Eastmans"; Nick Kroll and Nora Zehetner have landed leads on Fox's comedy pilot "Cop House," directed and executive produced by Brett Ratner; and Scott Porter has joined Fox's drama pilot "Masterwork."

On WBTV's "Eastmans," about a complicated family of doctors, the U.K.-born D'Arcy will play the oldest of five Eastman children, a top vascular surgeon. He is repped by CAA and the U.K.'s Markham & Froggatt.

20th TV's "House" is set at a halfway house for troubled cops. Kroll will play an overzealous cop with an enormous ego and delusional fantasies. Zehetner will play the house psychologist, who runs group-therapy sessions.

20th TV's globe-trotting adventure "Masterwork" centers on an FBI agent (Matt Passmore), a specialist in the acquisition of stolen art. "Friday Night Lights" alum Porter will play his cohort, also an agent tracking down international art thieves. He is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment.
