ABC's midseason comedy Miss/Guided has landed another cast member in Saturday Night Live showboat Chris Parnell.
Parnell, who recurred last season as Tracy Jordan's ethically-challenged caregiver Dr. Leo Spaceman on 30 Rock, has signed on to co-star on the ABC comedy starring Judy Greer as a hot mess and social reject who returns to her high school as a guidance counselor. On Miss/Guided, Parnell will play Bruce, a rival guidance counselor who clashes with Greer's clueless Becky.
In other casting news, Veronica Mars' Sheriff Don Lamb (a.k.a. Michael Muhney) has landed a lead on Lifetime's drama pilot Family Practice, opposite Joey Honsa and Beau Bridges.
The story revolves around a young woman (Honsa) whose life becomes entangled with that of a wealthy, Kennedy-esque family that runs one of the city's most prominent law firms under the watchful eye of the Kinglare pater familias (Bridges).
Muhney, last seen attempting to take down a perp as the morality-free Sheriff Lamb on Veronica Mars, will play Kent, the youngest member of the Kinglare family, who attempts to free himself from his overbearing family by becoming a public defender.
