Bobby Cannavale Cast as the New CUPID

Bobby Cannavale has been cast in the title role in the ABC pilot Cupid, an updated version of Rob Thomas’ 1990s comedy. Cannavale will play Trevor Hale, a manic yet charming man who believes he is the Roman god of love. Jeremy Piven played the role on the original series.

At first glance Cannavale, best known for his roles on Will and Grace and Third Watch, might not seem a winning choice. But movie fans who’ve seen his marvelous turn in The Station Agent know the guy’s got hidden depths worth plumbing, as well as some pretty impeccable comic timing.

No word yet on who will play the Paula Marshall role as Trevor’s therapist.
