Two roles on a new CBS comedy series will need recasting.
Michael Rapaport and Mary Elizabeth Ellis will leave "The Millers," the Greg Garcia multi-camera show that stars Will Arnett (“Arrested Development”).
The comedy focuses on recently-divorced Jack (Arnett) whose parents (played by Beau Bridges and Margo Martindale) start having their own marital problems to complicate Jack’s life.
Rapaport was to play the husband to Jack’s sister (played by “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s” Ellis), Adam. He struggles to make a living selling mattresses.
“Raising Hope’s” Garcia is writing and exec producing the show. Veteran director James Burrows will helm the multi- camera CBS Television production. JB Smoove is also a co- star.
Garcia recently left “Raising Hope” and was replaced by Mike Mariano as showrunner on the show. Mariano had been an exec producer and writer on the show, and also worked with Garcia on “My Name is Earl.” Garcia has an overall deal with CBS Television Studios for four years.
All the recastings on new shows thus far this year have been on comedies, like NBC’s “The Family Guide” (Parker Posey), “Sean Saves the World” (Lindsay Sloane), and Fox’s “Surviving Jack” (Alex Kapp Horner).
