Butz (Catch Me If You Can) has been cast in Jason Katims' NBC drama "County," which stars Jason Ritter. The project, from Universal TV, chronicles the lives of young doctors, nurses and administrators in L.A. County Hospital. Butz will play a new intern at County, a former CPA who is more focused on finding the next party.

Hirsch (Conversations With My Father, I'm Not Rappaport) will co-star with Ben Falcone in a CBS untitled pilot written by Falcone and Larry Dorf. The comedy centers on David (Falcone), a single 37-year-old who loses everything he has in the real-estate collapse and finds himself back at his parents' house. Hirsch will play David's father. Falcone, Melissa McCarthy and Shana Goldberg-Meehan are executive producers.

Elizabeth Perkins (Brighton Beach Memoirs) will star opposite Sarah Chalke in Claudia Lonow's ABC comedy "How to Live With Your Parents For The Rest Of Your Life." The project, from 20th TV and Imagine, focuses on a recently divorced single mom, Polly (Chalke), who moves in with her eccentric parents, Elaine (Perkins) and Max.

Rue (Little Egypt at NYMF) will join Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin in the ABC half-hour comedy "Malibu Country." As previously reported, "Malibu Country" stars McEntire as Reba Gallagher, who, after her rock-star husband cheats on her, divorces him and moves her family from Nashville to a little house in Malibu.

Sigler (Beauty and the Beast) has joined the NBC multi-camera comedy "DILFs." Written by Charlie Grandy, "DILFs" centers on three men who enjoy the adventures of parenting despite the fact that they haven't grown up themselves. Sigler will play the wife of Zach Cregger's character. Julia Stiles (Oleanna) and Tony nominee David Harbour (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) have been cast in NBC's drama pilot "Midnight Sun." In "Midnight Sun," female FBI cult specialist Leah Kafka (Stiles) uncovers a large conspiracy while leading an investigation. Harbour will play Ethan Davis, who runs the local Coast Guard.

Additionally, Jeff Goldblum, who will join the cast of Broadway's Seminar April 3, will guest star in the pilot of "Susan 313," according to the Hollywood Reporter. "Susan 313," by actress-comedian Sarah Silverman, is loosely based on Silverman's life and stars the comedian as a woman readjusting to single life following a decade-long relationship. Goldblum will play Silverman's ex-boyfriend.
