EXCLUSIVE: Heather Graham has been tapped to star opposite Rob Corddry in Fox’s comedy pilot Little In Common. Rob Thomas’ single-camera comedy, produced by WBTV, centers on the Wellers (Corddry, Graham), who move from California to Texas but find that their adjustment won’t be quite that easy considering their Latina single-mother neighbor (Alana Ubach) has a radically different approach to child-rearing than they do, while their other new neighborhood acquaintances, the African American Burlesons (Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union), take sports very seriously. Graham’s role, which has been recast, was played by Paula Marshall in the original pilot, in which Ubach had a husband played by Lombardo Boyar. This is a rare series gig for Graham, who has been focused primarily on features. She previously toplined the short-lived ABC comedy Emily’s Reasons Why Not and recurred on Scrubs. Read More »
