Actors find 'Maladys' infectious


Adam Scott and Zak Orth have joined the cast of HBO's comedy pilot "The Wonderful Maladys," starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The single- camera comedy, set in New York, revolves around the dysfunctional lives of three siblings — Alice (Gellar), Mary (Molly Parker) and Neil (Nate Corddry) — who lost their parents at a young age.

The Gersh-repped Orth will play Mary's playwright husband, the family's confident moral center. Scott will play Alice's ex, a businessman.

Scott, repped by CAA and Untitled, is filming the romantic comedy feature "Leap Year," starring Amy Adams. (partialdiff)
