David Cross, Michael Vartan to Star in Demoted

When I think of David Cross I think "ooh, funny!" (actually I think "never-nude" but that's for another conversation). When I think of Michael Vartan I think first "hot" and then "Vaughn," but never "funny!" And yet, these two will be paired up for the comedy Demoted. The Hollywood Reporter has more details:

Vartan will play Rodney McAdams, a hotshot Treadline Tires sales associate who delights in tormenting his less-than-cool colleague, Ken (Cross). But when their boss suddenly dies, Ken is promoted and assigns Rodney to a secretarial job as payback, giving the male chauvinist a taste of his own medicine.

I love to see Cross getting more work. And though these two seem strange together, maybe they'll have a great funny man/straight man thing going on. What do you think?

Michael Vartan is very attractive but I don't really like him as an actor, I don't think he's very good. I only liked him in "Never been kissed" and everywhere else I found him blah.

I'm glad to see more of the cast members from Arrested Development getting work now. Btw, I can't wait for the movie!!!

I love Vartan and will watch anything with him. Big Shots was so bad I was thankful when it was canceled so he could move on to something else. I hope this is good. Although I'd rather see him in something more like Alias...I love the butt kicking. ;)

Well hello!!!!! Where have I been? Thanks to Sofi for letting me know this post was up. Basically I'll see anything with Micheal Vartan in it, although at times Big Shots was excruciating except for his scenes. He was incredible in Alias, man, I miss that show. I'm just thrilled that he has another project in the works - he is one of those unused actors, I think he needs to get a new agent! Buzz, thanks for making my day with this news :)

Oops I wish I could've edited my post...I realize this isn't a TV show, but I would be happy to see Vartan in any medium (movies, TV, etc.) and David Cross is hilarious too.

The more Vartan the better, I miss seeing him on the TV screen but I still think my favorite role is when he played Mr. Coulson in Never been Kissed.

Michael Vartan (Vaughn!) Is always a delight and Cross is funny so it may be a good show.

Love them both, too. Especially Vartan. Someday I will make him fall in love with me by using my cruddy French.

There are dozens of us! DOZENS! I'll watch it because even if the movie as a whole isn't that great, Cross is always hilarious.

I'll see it for Cross's comedy and Vartan's utter hotness and charm.

Hahaha, never nude! Now I've got a disturbing blue jean cutoffs image in my mind. Vartan was pretty funny on that one ep of Kitchen Confidential, playing a French chef.

Love them both- for different reasons of course! I'll give them a chance- hope it's as funny/good as I'm anticipating.
