Nick Frost has been tapped for the lead role on Fox's single-camera comedy pilot Sober Companion, TVGuide.com has learned.
The Hot Fuzz star will play Robert, an attorney who's intelligent and driven, but also struggles with addiction. After drunkenly faceplanting in court, he's assigned a highly unconventional sober companion for three months and has to choose between giving up his lifestyle or giving up his career. (Yes, this is a comedy.)
As previously announced, the title character will be played by Justin Long.
