'Questions' makes casting changes

Only three of the original cast members will stay on

NBC's new comedy series "100 Questions" is undergoing more casting changes ahead of its midseason debut.

The series' producing team has opted to recast two more regular roles, played in the pilot by Elizabeth Ho and Joy Suprano.

That follows the dismissal of another regular in the pilot, Amir Talai, a couple of weeks ago.

With the three casting changes, only three original "100 Questions" cast members will stay on: star Sophie Winkleman, male lead David Walton and Christopher Moynihan, who also created the show and serves as an executive producer.

The UMS/Tagline-produced "100 Questions" centers on a young woman looking for love (Winkleman) who joins a popular online dating site.

The three vacant roles on the series, which are being recast, are her male dating counselor and two girlfriends.

British TV director Alex Hardcastle has been tapped as house director on "100 Questions," taking over from sitcom veteran James Burrows, who helmed the pilot but didn't intend to continue beyond that.

Hardcastle ("Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire") also is expected to serve in some producing capacity on the series, which is executive produced by Moynihan, showrunner Michelle Nader and Tagline's Ron West and Kelly Kulchak.
