Actress Melanie Lynskey, best known for her recurring role on CBS' Two and a Half Men, has been cast in the new comedy pilot being developed by Mark and Jay Duplass at HBO called Togetherness.
The series will focus on two couples that live in the same house while struggling to manage their lives, relationships and individual dreams.
Lynskey will play Michelle Pierson, a hard-working mother of two whose marriage is falling apart. Pierson has a sweet disposition and wants more out of life than what she has been given.
The Duplass brothers, who have worked together on films "The Do-Deca-Pentathlon," "Jeff, Who Lives at Home," "Cyrus," "Baghead," "The Puffy Chair," and "Scrapple," will write, executive produce and direct the half-hour pilot. Mark is also one of the stars on FX's The League.
Lynskey, who plays Rose, the neighbor of Alan and Waldon on Two and a Half Men, has also appeared on HBO's The Life & Times of Tim and films "Up in the Air," "Flags of Our Fathers, "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," "Perks of Being a Wallflower" and "Away We Go."
What do you think of this concept? The Duplass brothers involvement makes me interest in this project.
