Dan Castellaneta, best known as the voice of Homer Simpson in Fox's comedy series The Simpsons, has joined the cast of TBS' half-hour pilot The Jeff Garlin Project. Bob Einstein (Fox's Arrested Development, aka Super Dave Osborne) and Jackie Hoffman (FX's Starved) also have been cast in the pilot, which features Garlin (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm) playing a version of himself.
The Hollywood Reporter says the project revolves around Garlin's fictional variety show and features flashbacks to the events of the past week that inspired that particular installment of the variety show.
Castellaneta will play a snippy bank teller. Einstein plays the uncle of Garlin's wife (who is played by Garlin's real-life, Marla Garlin). Hoffman plays an annoying neighbor.
