Casting chronicles: 'Entourage' actors head to CBS

The Internet is abuzz with casting news as more actors flock to the tube.

Deadline is reporting that “Entourage’s” Kevin Connolly will head back to TV for the pilot episode of “Friends With Better Lives."

Connolly stars alongside James Van Der Beek in the CBS comedy, which revolves around six 30-something friends who all think the grass could be greener. The actor is set to play gynecologist Bobby Lutz opposite Van Der Beek’s Will.

Earlier this month, Deadline reported that Brooklyn Decker would also join the cast as Jules, a former model.

“Friends” producer Dana Klein will write and executive produce the series.

Connolly isn’t the only former “Entourage” actor heading to CBS. TV Line reports that his on-screen love, Emmanuelle Chriqui, has joined the cast of “The Ordained.” The drama will also star “Boardwalk Empire‘s” Charlie Cox.

Already in the CBS family, “The Talk’s” Sara Gilbert might star in a new comedy pilot from CBS called “Bad Teacher,” Entertainment Weekly reports.

The comedy, which is based on Cameron Diaz’s 2011 flick of the same name, could see Gilbert as a shy English teacher.

Meanwhile, on ABC, Kelly Preston will play the title character on “Keep Calm and Karey On,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As the mom to three adopted children, Preston’s Karey tries hard to be a good parent on the comedy, which will also star Jane Seymour as her mother, THR reports.

    I loved the episode! Finally Rick can come out of the madness, Carl can finally look his dad in the eye, I LOVED THE CAT STATUE! Too funny. They really need to allow more people in! I missed Morgan and really looked forward to his return and was not disappointed! Sad about the kid, but I think that followed with the graphic novel. But i felt bad for carl for once when he realized their house was gone. Nice to see Michonne smile! This was great writing. Liked all the details of the different signs, grafitti, the Erin-Sophia connection, and still want to know what exactly was on the walls (only caught a few things).
