The McCarthy's - Jim Dunn to Reprise his Role

Jimmy Dunn has been cast in CBS’ new pilot for The McCarthys, from Sony TV and Will Gluck’s Olive Bridge Entertainment. The comedy is being retooled as multi-camera after shooting a single-camera pilot last season. Written/co-executive produced by Brian Gallivan, The McCarthys revolves around a big, sports-crazed Irish Catholic clan in Boston and the gay son whose greatest sin is not his sexuality but his desire to spend less time with his family. Dunn will play one of the sons, the dim and a little chubby Sean McCarthy, who lives in an attic room off of his brother Gerard’s third-floor apartment. Dunn is reprising the role he played in the original pilot after retesting for it. He rejoins fellow original cast members Jack McGee and Joey McIntyre and will co-star alongside new addition Laurie Metcalf.
