Sean Hayes has joined the cast of The Millers next season. He’ll play a new pal of Carol (Margo Martindale) whose presence annoys Carol’s son Nathan (Will Arnett).

• Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect) is attached to star in a re-imagining of the now-classic 1980 Goldie Hawn comedy Private Benjamin. In the original, scripted by Nancy Meyers, after Judy Benjamin’s husband dies on their wedding night, a recruiting agent tricks the prissy widower into enlisting in the U.S. Army. It’s obviously not what she expected. The new take finds a “redneck” (Wilson) and a city girl who enlist in the Marines as an escape from their lives. [Den of Geek; The Wrap]
