Michael Boatman replaces Duane Martin in 'Instant Mom'


Yesterday, the cast for Nick at Nite's upcoming pilot 'Instant Mom' sat for a table-read, where the actors try out their lines together for the first time. I don't know what happened during that initial meeting, but it wasn't good--one of the two lead roles was immediately recast.


Duane Martin was removed from the role of successful doctor Charlie, husband to Tia Mowry's titular 'Instant Mom.' Martin has swiftly been replaced by none other than Michael Boatman (pictured above), best known for his role on the sitcom 'Spin City.' More recently, Boatman has held recurring roles on dramas like 'The Good Wife' and comedies like Charlie Sheen's 'Anger Management.'

The new role on 'Instant Mom' takes Boatman from "supporting" to "starring," a very nice move up for his career. Written by Warren Bell and Jessica Butler, loosely based on their lives, 'Instant Mom' is about a young party-girl who marries a handsome older man--who has children from a previous union. Duane MartinThe new step-mother must adjust to responsibility and motherhood--a far cry from the drinks and dancing she's accustomed to.


No word as of yet on why Martin was removed from the series. Martin, known for his comedic timing, has most recently recurred on 'The Paul Reiser Show' and the series 'Rita Rocks. He is recognized as Willie's agent from the box-office hit feature 'Any Given Sunday.'
