Gary Cole, most recently spied as Dana Delany's hubby/tormenter on Housewives, has signed on to costar on the ABC pilot Good Behavior.

In the drama about a family of criminals struggling to go straight, Cole will play the patriarch, freshly sentenced to a nickel in the clink. Jeffrey Tambor (of The Ropers fame) will guest-star as the pawn shop partner of the brood's matriarch, played by Catherine O'Hara. - MWM
