David Cross has joined the cast of Running Wilde, a Fox sitcom produced by Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz starring Will Arnett and Keri Russell.
Arnett, in keeping with his oeuvre, will play Steve Wilde, a self-assured (if not too bright) Los Angelino with a daddy in the oil business. Keri Russell plays an environmentalist, an old high school crush of Wilde, and the current object of his affection.
Andy Daly – the excellent principal Cutler from Eastbound and Down – was originally set to play Russel’s fiance (and makes a hilarious doormat of a man, if you ask me) but has been replaced by David Cross. However, we know from AD Cross makes a good sidecar to Women With Causes, so we’ll see.
Fox ordered thirteen episodes which are set to premiere in September.
