'The Talk' co-host to star in CBS pilot


A co-host on The Talk may do double-duty on a comedy series.

Sara Gilbert, one of the five hosts on CBS’ daytime yakker, has been cast in the Eye’s Bad Teacher — a comedy pilot based on the 2011 movie that starred Cameron Diaz. Gilbert will play a shy English teacher named Irene.

Actress Ari Graynor (Fringe) will play the title role.

If cast, Gilbert would keep her day job on The Talk — a show she also produces. At the same time, it would return Gilbert to her comedy roots: She co-starred on Roseanne from 1988 to 1997 and has also appeared on The Big Bang Theory.

The news about Gilbert was first reported on Deadline.
