Elliott Gould and Martin Short join John Mulaney pilot

A “Saturday Night Live” star has brought in some heavy- hitters for his NBC comedy pilot.

Elliott Gould

Elliott Gould and Martin Short will co- star opposite John Mulaney in his untitled comedy from Lorne Michaels, 3 Arts and Universal TV.

The project is written and executive produced by Mulaney and exec produced by Robert Carlock (“30 Rock”).

The comedy is a young ensemble loosely based on Mulaney’s life. John (played by Mulaney), has a naïve (often pointless) desire to “be a good person.” That goal challenges his friendship with roommates Jane and Seymour (get it?).

Mulaney has been a writer on “Saturday Night Live” since 2008, and has also acted on the show. He also voice acted on “Ugly Americans,” and will appear on the “Kroll Show.”

Gould has had a long and steady career. Some of his highlights include “The Big Hit” “Ocean’s Eleven” and a recurring role as Ross and Monica’s father on “Friends.”

Gould will play John’s gay neighbor, and Short plays game show host Lou.

Short appeared for many years on “Saturday Night Live,” “The Three Amigos,”  and  and “Father of the Bride.”

Gould is represented by APA. Short is repped by WME.
