Nate Corddry to Star in NBC's New Series, 'Harry's Law'

For TV actors the worst feeling must be being replaced on a TV show after the pilot gets picked up for series. Right before you're fired, you think you have it made -- you've beat the odds and now you'll be rich. Then the rug is pulled out and you're back to waiting tables at IHOP.

Recently, Rob Corddry appeared on 'Fitzdog Radio' and mentioned his brother, Nate, was currently in line to be the actor on the other side of that pendulum -- the replacer and not the replacee. However, he was talking about a role opposite William Shatner on the new CBS sitcom '$#*! My Dad Says,' the first TV show based on a Twitter page.

Instead Nate Corddry will be replacing Ben Chaplin on David E. Kelley's new legal drama 'Harry's Law.' The show stars Kathy Bates as a recently-fired patent lawyer, who assembles a rag-tag group of associates to form a unique law practice in a rundown shoe store. The show is currently scheduled to be a 2010-2011 mid-season replacement.

For those only familiar with the older, balder Corddy's work, young Nate has the potential to be the better-known brother. He co-starred on 'Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip' and did an amazing, yet creepy character arc on 'United States of Tara.' He seems as at home with drama as comedy, a talent that will go far opposite Bates being all "Batesian."
