Actress Anjelah Johnson (MADtv) Cast in ‘About a Boy’ Pilot for NBC


Deadline is reporting that MADtv alum Anjelah Johnson has been cast in the NBC pilot About a Boy directed by Jon Favreau.


Written by Jason Katims, and directed by Revolution’s Jon Favreau, About A Boy follows the relationship between Will (David Walton), a bachelor man-child who is going through a revolving door of women, and the young boy who moves in next door with his kooky single mother, Fiona (Minnie Driver). Johnson will play Laurie, the well-meaning but often overbearing wife of Will’s best friend and mother of 3 who is frustrated by Will’s childishness.
