Christopher Mintz-Plasse signs on to CBS pilot

Looks like McLovin needs some new pals.

Actor Christopher Mintz-Plasse - who played the fake-ID-sporting geek in the 2007 laughfest “Superbad” - has signed on to do a CBS pilot called “Friend Me,” according to Deadline.

If the comedy is picked up it would be Mintz-Plasse’s first big TV role: his only other small-screen appearance was a cameo on Starz’s “Party Down.”

The actor is expected to play one of two leads on the show, with the other being played by Nicholas Braun, who you may remember from the show “10 Things I Hate About You.”

Mintz and Braun have been cast as 20-something best buds who ditch their hometown of Bloomington, Indiana, for the big lights of Los Angeles after being hired by Groupon.

(No word yet on whether TV fans will get a discount on their cable subscription when the series starts.)

Until then Mintz and Braun are keeping it in the same broadcast family: they’re both currently shooting the comedy “Get A Job” for CBS Films.
