Image Credit: Charles Norfleet/PR PhotosIt’s a busy few days in Michael Urie news. Longtime EW fave Urie has been cast in a TBS pilot, Brain Trust, the network confirms. It’s a “comic detective series” about a disgraced cop who turns to three “hyper-smart geniuses” (none of those dumb geniuses, please!) from a think-tank to help him solve cases. Urie is one of the geniuses, and D.B. Sweeney is the detective.

Urie, who’s set to take over as Prior in the current revival of Angels in America, stood out amongst the awesome cast of Ugly Betty, and I can’t wait to see him back in a regular gig. As someone who devoutly endured The Lone Gunman once upon a time, I’m not immune to the charms of geek trios, either.

Does Brain Trust sound fun, or were you hoping Urie would land on a different show?
