In a very cool casting, Nick Frost has landed a starring role in a Fox comedy pilot.

Brit-com fans know Frost from his films with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. Frost has co-starred in Shaun of the Dead, Paul, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.

He’s now joined Fox’s Sober Companion. His character is an attorney, and described as “intelligent, driven, and an addict. So drunk that he does a face-plant in court, he is assigned a sober companion [Justin Long] for the next 90 days, and must either stay away from everything he deems to be fun, or lose his job and probably his liberty.”
