Greg Grunberg will star in A&E's pilot Big Mike, TVLine.com reports.

Grunberg was originally cast in NBC's Love Bites but no premiere date for the show has been set.
Getting lucky is tough in Sin City, but Camille Guaty hit the jackpot as one of the newest regulars on NBC's Las Vegas (Fridays at 10 pm/ET). The actress clues us in on where her character's headed, her possible return to Prison Break and why she enjoyed dressing as a giant booger for Halloween.

I couldn't remember my lines, all I wanted to do was lie on the floor and have a blanket over me. I think we probably did that scene, like, 30 times.
