GO ON (NBC) - Tyler James Williams (Disney Channel's "Let It Shine") has been made a series regular on the upcoming comedy, about Ryan King (Matthew Perry) an irreverent yet charming sportscaster, who after his wife dies, finds surprising solace from the members of his support group. He plays Owen ("young, awkward and, before Ryan's entrance, a nonparticipant"), a member of said group. Allison Miller, Bill Cobbs, Julie White, Khary Payton, Laura Benanti and Suzy Nakamura also star in the Universal Television-based half-hour, from writer Scott Silveri and director Todd Holland. Williams also guest starred on the Martin Lawrence-led pilot "Over and Out" at CBS as Devon, the preppy son of Lawrence's character. (Deadline.com)


WORKING CLASS HERO (FOX, New!) - Paget Brewster ("Criminal Minds") has joined the cast of the animated presentation, about a world where superheroing is just another low-paid government job and centers on Jeff (Patton Oswalt) a dad whose powers are no match for his misfit superhero co-workers and his demanding family. She'll play Karen, his overly supportive wife, who as an EMT is the family's main financial support. Mike Barker, Jordan Blum and Brent Woods are all behind the project, which is set up at 20th Century Fox Television. (Deadline.com)
