Two well-known actors have been cast in some upcoming pilots for ABC. According to Deadline, John Leguizamo has signed a development deal with ABC to star in comedy pilot “Only Fools and Horses.”
The sitcom is about two streetsmart brothers and their grandfather, as the three of them organize get-rich-quick schemes in their efforts to become wealthy. Leguizamo is the older of the two brothers. Part of the deal with ABC is that if “Only Fools” doesn’t become a series, they will develop a single-camera comedy inspired by Leguizamo’s life.
Meanwhile, “Without a Trace” star Anthony LaPaglia has signed on to make the pilot “Americana,” also for ABC, in which he plays a fashion industry icon named Robert Soulter.
