EXCLUSIVE: Bill Condon is bringing more feature talent to his HBO comedy pilot Tilda. In his first TV gig, Jason Patric has signed on to co-star opposite Diane Keaton in the project, which centers on Tilda (Keaton), a powerful female online Hollywood journalist with a no-holds-barred style. Patric will play her nemesis, Andrew Brown, the mastermind behind the media empire RMG, which Tilda is trying to expose the inner workings of. The cast for Tilda, which Condon wrote with Cynthia Mort, also includes Ellen Page and Wes Bentley. Filming is slated for June in Los Angeles. Patric, repped by ICM and Untitled, most recently co-starred in The Losers. His only previous TV stint was playing himself in an episode of HBO’ other Hollywood-centric comedy, Entourage.
