Additional Updates for:
FOX's American Dad and NBC's About a Boy.

Pilot Castings:
CBS' Untitled Jim Gaffigan Project and ABC's Galavant.

Ashley Williams (How I Met Your Mother) will co-star on the untitled CBS comedy pilot written by and starring Jim Gaffigan. She will play Jeannie, Jim's (Gaffigan) wife, a super-wife and super-mom, possessing a seemingly unlimited storehouse of energy, encouragement, patience and good humor.

The Walking Dead star Steven Yeun will be lending his voice to an upcoming episode of FOX's American Dad. He will play Charles, Vincent's new assistant.

Bridesmaids writer Annie Mumolo has joined NBC's midseason comedy About a Boy in a major recurring role. She will play Laurie, the wife of Will's (David Walton) best friend Andy (Al Madrigal).

Diane Neal (Law & Order: SVU) has been tapped for a recurring role on Starz's upcoming drama series Power. She will play the polished, professional and hyper-intelligent Cynthia Sheridan, who works for Vogue magazine and is also working with Ghost (Omari Hardwick) and his club to host a blowout party for her boss.

Graceland star Serinda Swan will guest on an upcoming episode of The CW's The Tomorrow People. She will play Cassandra "Cassie" Smythe, the Founder's daughter who becomes the object of Stephen's fascination when he learns they share a psychic connection.

Joshua Sasse (Rogue) has landed the lead role on the ABC comedy pilot Galvant. Also cast on the project are Karen David, Mallory Jansen and Luke Youngblood. The project centers on Prince Galavant (Sasse) - a classic once-upon-a-time hero - and his quest for revenge over the evil King Richard who stole his one true love, the beautiful Madalena (Janesen). To his shock, Madalena decided she prefers the King and his wealth and power to the love of penniless Galavant. David will play Princess Isabella, the daughter of the King and Queen of Valencia, whose country has been conquered by King Richard, and she seeks out Galavant. Youngblood will play Sid, Galavant's squire, who's doing his best to get the drunken, broke Galavant to get back in the saddle again after the heartbreak of Madalena.
