Michael Vartan is answering the question 'whatever happened to Michael Vartan?' by signing up to play the lead in new comedy Demoted, alongside David Cross.

Vartan will play Rodney McAdams, a superstar tire salesman who enjoys nothing more than picking on his nerdy colleague, Ken (Cross). The tables are turned, however, when Ken is promoted over Rodney after their boss dies.

J.B. Rogers (American Pie 2) will direct from a screenplay by Dan Callahan.

RE: Oh dear
More to the point; why should I care about this movie besides the fact that Vartan is in it? And also that is not the best seller, he's hardly a broad-ranged actor. (Perfect for Alias I admit) More
