'Daily Show' Star Making Big Move

'Daily Show' Star Making Big Move
"The Daily Show" may have another correspondent leaping into the big time.

Senior correspondent Jason Jones is set to co-star in the CBS comedy pilot "The Assistants," Deadline reports. He'll play husband to Heather Locklear's character, a celebrity with a freshly hired, star-eyed assistant, to be played by David Henrie. This is Jones' second go-round with CBS; in 2008, he and wife/"Daily Show" co-star Samantha Bee worked on a pilot for the network about a celebrity chef.
