Elisha Cuthbert by Kevin Parry/WireImage.com
Elisha Cuthbert ( 24) has landed the female lead in NY-LON, a CBS drama pilot based on a British series that starred Rashida Jones and Stephen Moyer. The premise: A New York City teacher/record-store clerk embarks on a cross-continental romance with a London stockbroker. (Get it - NY-LON? Took me a minute, too.)

Also cast in the pilot, says the Reporter, are Caterina Scorsone ( 1-800-MISSING) and Johnny Whitworth ( CSI: Miami), playing Cuthbert's roommate and ex-boyfriend, respectively. - MWM
