Lenny Venito (Men In Black 2 & 3, The Sopranos) has landed a lead role in ABC’s untitled Dan Fogelman comedy pilot. The single-camera project, from ABC Family and Kapital Entertainment, centers on Marty Weaver (Venito) who, in order to give his kids a better life than he had, moves his family — wife Debbie (Jami Gertz) and three children — to an exclusive, lush, curiously affordable gated community in New Jersey, which has only one drawback: everyone else living there is an alien from Planet Zabvron.

Graham Patrick Martin has been cast as a series regular on TNT’s upcoming The Closer spinoff series Major Crimes. He will play Rusty, a homeless juvenile character that is being introduced in the series finale of Closer. Martin, repped by TalentWorks and Untitled, was a regular on The Bill Engvall Show and has been recurring on Two And A Half Men.
