Matthew Wilkas, who recently appeared in the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, as well as the acclaimed indie film Gayby, has joined the cast of the NBC pilot Undateable, according to Deadline.com.
The multicamera comedy centers around two best bros who are completely undateable. The best friends are played by comedian Brent Morin and Chris D’Elia (Whitney). Written by Due Date’s Adam Sztykiel, the pilot is based on the book Undateable: 311 Things Guys Do That Guarantee They Won’t be Dating or Having Sex. Wilkas plays Morin’s gay best friend Brett, who finds something wrong with every guy he meets.
Undateable marks Wilkas’ first major TV role. He has previously appeared in bit parts on Ugly Betty, All My Children and Hope & Faith. He has also appeared on stage at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, the Huntington Theatre Company, the Berkshire Theatre Festival and the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.
