Sarah Paulson Nabs Lead Role in Rob Thomas' Cupid for ABC

Sarah Paulson Shot by Cupid's Arrow

Sarah Paulson, last seen as the uptight Harriet Hayes on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, is heading back to TV — in a comedy this time. Paulson has landed the female lead in Cupid, Rob Thomas' remake of his own 1998 series.

Paulson will play opposite Bobby Cannavale on the show, which originally aired for one season on ABC. Cupid focuses on Trevor Hale, who believes he's a Roman god sent to earth to help people find love. Paulson will play his therapist, Claire, who's assigned to cure him of his delusions. In the original, Paula Marshall played Claire, while Jeremy Piven starred as Trevor/Cupid.

It's not every day that we get to see a producer remake his own material, so I'm curious to see what becomes of this pilot. If you've never seen the original, TV critic Alan Sepinwall has a great set of recaps of the whole series, which is available nearly in full on YouTube. The only thing missing is the start of the first episode, so to check out the script for that part, just head over here.

If you’re interested, I started recently, together with some friends, Cupid Wiki: No ads. Just good content. I am updating it when I have the chance. Obviously, the focus in on the series about to air, but we want to cover also the “Chicago” series.

Very exciting. I loved Jeremy Piven (although not a fan of Paula) in the original, and was doubtful about the remake, but the casting of Bobby and Sarah sound great.

Her smile is sooo weird in this picture, and the longer I look at it, the weirder it becomes, lol! Is trying to hide her teeth or something??
