7 April 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Bobby Cannavale will play the title role in ABC's comedy pilot Cupid.

Meanwhile, Bob Odenkirk, Rachel Blanchard and Phil Hendrie have joined CBS' comedy pilot Mike Birbiglia's Secret Public Journal, while Ken Marino and Brook Bloom have booked the leads in Fox's comedy pilot Outnumbered.

In other pilot casting news, Alexandra Breckenridge and Adam Rothenberg have been added to the CBS drama Mythological Ex, and Rick Peters and Brooke D'Orsay have come aboard the CBS comedy Single White Millionaire.

The ABC Studios-produced Cupid is an updated version of Rob Thomas' 1990s comedy for ABC. Cannavale will play the charming and manic Trevor Hale, who thinks he is the Roman god of love, Cupid, banished to Earth until he can match 100 couples. Jeremy Piven played the role on the original series. Cannavale, an Emmy winner for his recurring role as Vince D'Angelo on "Will & Grace," starred in the NBC drama pilot M.O.N.Y. last season.

Journal, from CBS Par, stars Birbiglia as himself, a stand-up comedian who lives with his girlfriend in Brooklyn and struggles in his efforts to be a grown-up. »
