Two actors join 'Awkward Situations' pilot
'187 Detroit,' 'Criminal Minds' spinoff also adding cast
"Chuck" alum Tony Hale and "Eli Stone" co-star Matt Letscher have been tapped to co-star opposite Danny Wallace on ABC's hybrid comedy pilot "Awkward Situations for Men."
"Situations," from WBTV, stars British on-air personality Danny Wallace as himself as he moves to the U.S. with his wife, only to discover that his everyday behavior clashes with American values and gets him into trouble.
Hale, whose character on "Chuck" was killed off in the show's season opener earlier this month, will play Will, Danny's first American friend who always looks out for him. Letscher, repped by Domain and Sanders/Armstrong/Caserta, will play the insecure boss at a smoothie place.
In "187 Detroit," from ABC Studios, a fictional documentary crew follows a top homicide division. Hill, whose Broadway credits include "Hairspray" and "The Boy From Oz," will play a rookie homicide detective and expectant father.
CBS' "Criminal Minds" spinoff, which revolves around a new group of profilers who work outside the FBI bureaucracy, will be introduced on an episode of "Criminal Minds" in the spring.
WME-repped Ryan ("The Tudors") will play Mick, a Cambridge-educated British ex-Mercenary, formerly of the British Special Forces, an expert sniper and a ladies man.
Forest Whitaker is finalizing a deal to play the squad leader.
