Paul Scheer, Stephen Rannazzisi, Nick Kroll and Mark Duplass
Until FX renewed The League Monday, die-hard fans were panicked they had seen the last of Kevin's meltdowns and Ruxin's schemes. Creators and executive producers Jackie and Jeff Schaffer said they never doubted the comedy's future.
"I honestly never questioned it," Jackie tells TVGuide.com. "I think we have the funniest cast on TV hands down. We weren't done with them, the network wasn't done with them yet and God knows the fans weren't done with them...

The latest crop of pilot castings: ABC has tapped Nick Kroll, Bill English and Kaitlin Doubleday to star as Nick, Joel and Kate in its comedy pilot inspired by the GEICO cavemen ads, says Variety. The best I can come up with is English plays "Johnson" in the Raisin Bran Crunch ads and appears in T-Mobile's "Secret Lovers" spot, while Doubleday's biggest role seems to be Waiting. TVGuide.com has learned that Sarah Joy Brown (Cold Case) has joined the cast of Company Man, Fox's Jason Behr-fronted spy drama boasting gobs and gobs of 24 cred. Brown plays the hard-ass manager of a top-secret project. Veteran actor Tom Conti will star in an untitled Fox comedy about a 10-year-old boy guided through life by his slightly loony grandfather, Reuters reports. Conti isn't playing the boy.
