In other pilot castings, Will Sasso has joined the ABC comedy "Five-Year Plan," while Jon Bernthal and Omar Benson Miller have come aboard the Fox drama "Courtroom K."

The untitled Kohan/Mutchick comedy, from Warner Bros. TV, centers on two men -- one straight (Cooke), one gay (Tudyk) -- who are lifelong best friends and business partners. Cooke, who starred on CBS' comedy pilot "My Best Friend's Girl," is repped by APA and Untitled.

"Plan," from Universal Media Studios, is a multicamera comedy about a group of twentysomethings who try to figure out the next five years and beyond.

Sasso will play Glen Simon, who, recently divorced and jealous of his younger brother's vast experience with women, has decided to relive the 20s he never had.

"Mad TV" alumnus Sasso ("College Road Trip") is repped by APA and Allman/Rae Management.

Paul Attanasio's "Courtroom K," from 20th Century Fox TV, is a darkly comedic drama that revolves around a judge (Alfred Molina), a prosecutor (Michael Landes) and a public defender (Megan Dodds).

Bernthal will play a veteran police detective who is involved with the defender.

Miller will play a social worker who gets into a conflict with the defender.
