We reported just a few days ago that Patton Oswalt has signed on to star in a new NBC pilot and now it seems that may not be the case. The Live Feed is reporting that Oswalt is no longer starring in the pilot Beach Lane.
Sources told the site that Oswalt would no longer star after a table read on Tuesday. It was also said that the producers have offered him a different role in the show, but it wasn't known if Oswalt was staying on.
Oswalt would've starred alongside Matthew Broderick and Kristen Johnston in the pilot. He would've played a slacker who takes over a two-bit newspaper who hires Broderick's character, a well-respected journalist, to bring some credibility to the paper.
