Cast updates: Match Game, Gossip Girl

  • 17comments

One of the things that made the celeb-studded classic The Match Game so darned entertaining was its propensity for being raunchy. So when TBS announced that it was making a contemporary version of the show, it knew it had to get some potty-mouthed comics on its celebrity panels.

Well they're clearly on the right track. Sarah Silverman (The Sarah Silverman Show) and Norm Macdonald (Saturday Night Live) have signed on to be on the Match Game pilot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Both comics are known for their off-color pasts, delivering politically incorrect barbs as part of their acts. The two will join Super Dave Osborne, The Kids in the Hall's Scott Thompson, The Office's Rashida Jones, and Reno 911's Niecy Nash.

Amick is joining the cast as "a sizzling cougar named Catherine Mason," according to EW.com. The site says that Catherine may play Mrs. Robinson to Chace Crawford's Nate, tempting him as the fetching older woman.

Elsewhere, former Women's Murder Club actress Ever Carradine is joining Sci Fi's Eureka, The West Wing's Janel Moloney has been added to ABC's Captain Cook's Extraordinary Atlas, and Viva Laughlin's Lloyd Owen will star in the Fox pilot Inseperable.
