Ryan Hansen Signs On For Another NBC Comedy
I love hearing casting news about former Veronica Mars stars. In this case, Iím referring to Ryan Hansen, who has been cast to star in NBCís comedy pilot Lovelives.
Deadline posted the news that Hansen, who is currently set to appear in the yet-to-air NBC comedy series Friends with Benefits, has been cast in another comedy pilot for the network. Lovelives is being written by Chris Chernin and follows Tim (Hansen) and his girlfriend Holly as they deal with love and infidelity. While Timís an intelligent, attractive professor at Fordham, heís not entirely honest with Holly.
Honestly, Iím already getting a little tired of relationship comedies (Perfect Couples, Mad Love, etc.) and hearing that Hansenís signed on for a new pilot doesnít sound good for the fate of Friends with Benefits, which according to Deadline, still doesnít have a premiere date. Still, this news does mean more potential for Hansen to return to the small screen and thatís a good thing. He was great as Dick Casablancas in Veronica Mars and as Kyle in Starzí Party Down. Itíll be interesting to see what he brings to this new role if the pilot gets picked up.
