Tyler Labine to Co-Star in CBS Comedy Pilot
CBS has found one of its leading men for its untitled Dan O'Shannon-Peter Warren comedy pilot.
Deadbeat's Tyler Labine will play Chris, an energetic guy who would rather have fun than work and tends to go with his gut instead of having a plan. He joins the previously announced Kelly O'Sullivan, who will play a fun, feisty girl named Katie.

In addition to Deadbeat, Labine's television credits include Animal Practice, Mad Love and Reaper. He's repped by CAA, The Characters Agency, Principato-Young and Jackoway Tyerman.
