As first reported by Deadline, Walton replaces Bryan Greenberg, who exited the project Wednesday after the pilot's table read. Walton will play Nick, a notorious womanizer who realizes after surviving a major health scare that his best friend of 15 years, Wendy (Garcia), is "the one." However, the odds are stacked against them. Wendy is engaged to a guy Nick likes. Not only that, but she and Nick own a business together and their one attempt at dating in college was a mess.
The comedy is in second position to NBC's Bent, which means Walton would have to stick with Bent if it gets renewed. It ended its six-episode first season on Wednesday to dismal ratings (2.03 million viewers, a 0.7 rating in the adults ages 18 to 49 demographic). Walton also played a womanizer on that comedy, opposite uptight lawyer Alex (Amanda Peet).
