Barefoot Doctor -> RE: Sorkin coming back to TV! Rejoice! (3/2/2006 8:23:10 AM)
Lots of massive news:
Nate Corddry (The Daily Show) will play Tom Jeter.
Evan Handler and Carlos Jacott will play Ricky and Ron.
Amanda Peet will play Jordan McDeere (not Jamie)
It's possible other characters names have changed, but they're not given names in the article. It's easy using the sides to see who Corddry, Jacott and Handler are playing though.
It seems that both Peet and Perry turned down the roles to begin with. They didn't know the immortal rule: Sorkin always gets his man. This is the guy who got Martin Sheen to commit to a television show!
