Michael Rosenbaum Headshot - P 2014

TV Land is looking to Smallville for its next lead.

Michael Rosenbaum has joined the cable network's single-camera comedy pilot Impastor, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Impastor centers on a low-life (Rosenbaum) who hides out in a small town by conning the residents into thinking he's their newly hired gay pastor. 

The casting comes weeks after Rosenbaum left NBC's 1960s space comedy Mission Control, which was ordered to series in May, in a recasting.

Chris Vane will serve as writer/executive producer on Impastor, which will also be executive produced by Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, as well as Robert Greenberg and Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum is repped by APA and Untitled Entertainment. Following Smallville, Rosenbaum appeared in Hit and Run; wrote, directed, starred in Back in the Day; and recurred on Fox's Breaking In.
