Pilot Season 2018: Top Actors in Demand and Getting Offers *Updated*

2 Broke Girls grad Kat Dennings — who has Hulu pilot Dollface still in contention — is also getting a slew of offers but is not expected to take anything. Other leading ladies with multiple offers include Lost alum Evangeline Lilly, Vera Farmiga, Olivia Munn, Leighton Meester, Neve Campbell, Ginnifer Goodwin and Marisa Tomei, among others.

Leading men who are getting multiple calls include New Girl's Jake Johnson and Max Greenfield; Saturday Night Live's Taran Killam and Jason Sudeikis, Dexter alum Michael C. Hall, Once Upon a Time's Colin O'Donoghue, The Strain's Corey Stoll, Parenthood's Dax Shepard, The Good Wife's Josh Charles and The Blacklist's Ryan Eggold, among others.


Raking in early offers are The Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan, Rosario Dawson as well as Damon Wayans Jr. who once again is the most sought comedic actor of pilot season.

Dawson, a star in the Marvel Netflix series, has not yet done a broadcast series and so far has passed on a couple of offers. New Girl and Happy Endings alum Wayans Jr. as usual is being courted for a ton of half-hour as well as hourlong pilots. Last year, he opted instead to do a cable pilot, FX’s Singularity, which is not going to series.

Perennial pilot casting directors’ favorite Christina Applegate again is making wish lists. Getting early offers are Olivia Munn and Leslie Odom Jr..

A few actors from departing or recently departed series are back in demand. That includes 2 Broke Girls‘ Kat Dennings who, early in the casting process has emerged as the most sought after comedy actress. She is joined by Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga and The Americans‘ Matthew Rhys, who may opt to stay cable/streaming arena. The list also includes Underground‘s Jurnee Smollett-Bell, New Girl’s Jake Johnson and Hannah Simone and Grimm‘s David Giuntoli.
