Freddie Prinze Jr. cast in 'No Heroics'

ABC's comedy pilot features B-list superheroes

Freddie Prinze Jr. has been tapped to star on ABC's comedy pilot "No Heroics."

ABC Studios' "Heroics" revolves around four B-list superheroes -- three of them played by Paul Campbell, Eliza Coupe and Arielle Kebbel -- living among us.

Canadian Campbell plays the leader of the group, Pete aka Chillout, a Canadian-born superhero who can freeze small objects.

Prinze will play his nemesis and tormentor Bradley aka Ultimatum, the personification of everything Pete despises and secretly wishes he could be. An A-list superhero, Bradley is a handsome, cocky and egotistical Alpha male who has all the women and fame and money a guy could want.

With Prinze signing on for the "No Heroics" gig, both he and his wife (and "Scooby-Doo" co-star) Sarah Michelle Gellar are on comedy pilot duty. She headlines HBO's "The Wonderful Maladys."

For Prinze, "Heroics" marks a return to ABC where he toplined the short-lived 2005 sitcom "Freddie."

Prinze is repped by ICM and Brillstein Entertainment.
