Fox is going with a familiar face and a not-so-familiar one for its new comedy series, Boldly Going Nowhere.

Arrested Development vet Tony Hale and newbie Ben Koldyke have been cast in the project, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

The much buzzed-about show — from the minds of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia creators, Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton — will focus on life on an intergalactic spaceship headed by a rogue captain (Koldyke).

Koldyke, who's labored with small parts in such flicks as The Next Best Thing and Thirteen Days, snagged the coveted role through chance, years ago — he complimented McElhenney on Sunny at a café and the two became friends.
