Alexander on the Beat at ABC
'Seinfeld' star cast in cop comedy
Alexander has taken a role in a comedy set at a police precinct. Jillian Armenante and Sarah Lafleur have also joined the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Also at ABC, Wayne Wilderson has joined "The Thick of It," while The CW has signed Jud Tylor for its pilot "Dash 4 Cash."
The cop comedy, from British writer Victoria Pile ("Smack the Pony," "Green Wing") will deal mostly with the lives of the officers working in a robbery-homicide precinct. Alexander will guest-star in the pilot as an Internal Affairs officer, and his part will become recurring if the show goes to series.
A multiple Emmy nominee for playing George Costanza on "Seinfeld," Alexander has guest-starred on "Everybody Hates Chris" this season. His most recent series was CBS' "Listen Up," which ran during the 2004-05 season.
Armenante ("Judging Amy") and Lafleur will play detectives in the squad.
Wilderson, who had a recurring part on "The Office" earlier this season, will play a political blogger on "The Thick of It." He's also appeared on "The Steve Harvey Show" and "CSI."
Over at The CW, Tylor ("What About Brian," "That '70s Show") has joined "Dash 4 Cash," which is set behind the scenes of a reality show. She'll play one of the contestants.
