Fox’s next potential sitcom star: Justin Long (He’s Just Not That Into You, Dodgeball) has been cast in the network’s single-cam comedy pilot Sober Companion.

He’ll star as Jeremy, a perennially upbeat, maddeningly eccentric sober companion who uses unconventional methods to keep clients clean.

Long recently clocked some time with Fox viewers as “Paul” on New Girl, and recently completed shooting the feature film Tusk for director Kevin Smith. Long also had an arc on CBS’ Mom last year and was on FX’s 2012 series Unsupervised.
