Aside from her talk show pilot for E! (which is testing in malls now), Mary Lynn Rajskub has just booked a role in a CBS comedy pilot.
Rajskub has joined CBS’ comedy pilot How to Be a Gentleman. The CBS Studios/MRC project, which David Hornsby wrote based on the book of the same name, is a buddy comedy about Alan (Hornsby), an uptight guy, who is learning to live his life with the help of his old high school classmate Bert (Kevin Dillon). Rajskub will play Alan’s sister Janet, an aggressive, absolutely no-BS successful lawyer who runs roughshod over her meek but loving husband. Rajskub recently did guest spots on two comedy series, ABC’s Modern Family and Fox’s Raising Hope.
