More Casting News: Tyler Labine to CBS, Neal McDonough Replaced by 'JAG' Star

LabineI caught up with 'Sons of Tucson' the other day, and you know what? It's pretty funny! The ratings aren't that great though, which is probably one of the reasons Tyler Labine has joined the pilot of a new CBS sitcom (that's him on the right riding over to CBS to sign the contract).

Labine will stay on 'Sons of Tucson' if FOX renews it. The new show is called 'True Love' and it's about four friends who live in New York (God, that a really generic description but shows aren't about plots it's about the writing). Everyone must love Labine because he has been offered this role more than once (he turned it down because 'Sons of Tucson' hadn't premiered yet). 'True Love' will also star Jason Biggs and Minka Kelly.

In other casting news, former 'JAG' star David James Elliott has replaced Neal McDonough in the pilot for ABC's 'Scoundrels.' We told you last month about this show, a "dramedy" starring Virginia Madsen as a mom who heads a family of crooks who decides to go straight after her husband is sent to jail. McDonough was going to play the husband but now he's out and Elliott is in.

I still haven't quite forgiven Fox for canceling "Reaper" in which Labine co-starred. It was imaginative, funny, and certainly like nothing else on TV. I have retained one episode on my DVR....

Reaper was on the CW, not Fox. That said, I loved that show and also thought it was canceled prematurely. Tyler Labine was the main draw for me - I think this guy is hilarious. But I canceled my 'season pass' halfway through the first episode of 'Sons of Tucson' - it was unbearably bad. Here's hoping this CBS pilot will give TL some better material to work with.

I was looking forward to seeing Neal in Scoundrels, but I won't watch it now.
