The Daily Show's Kristen Schaal Joins ABC's Pulling Pilot

ABC has found the last of the three female leads for the comedy pilot Pulling, which is based on the British series of the same name. The Daily Show’s Kristen Schaal will play the role of Louise, which was originally set to be played by Mandy Moore.

Moore dropped out of the project just a few days ago after some re-tooling of the character of Louise. Deadline says Schaal has signed on to play the role in a quick re-casting that suggests she may have been in consideration already. Pulling surrounds three women, Louise (now to be played by Schaal), Donna (June Diane Raphael) and Karen (Jenny Slate), all in their 30s and all doing their own thing while generally failing to live up to what society expects of them at their age.

Schaal is a correspondent on The Daily Show but has also made TV appearances in shows like The Heart, She Holler, 30 Rock, and Gravity Falls. She has done voice work for Bob’s Burgers and Toy Story 3. On the film side she appeared in The Muppets and Dinner for Schmucks with fellow Daily Show star Steve Carell.

The replacement of Mandy Moore with Schaal is an interesting one and gives some hints as to what some of the changes to the character might entail. While both women are easy to picture as “optimistic”, as Louise is described, Mandy Moore has more of a sweet girl next door feel to her, while Schaal is a little quirkier.

If nothing else, it will be fun to see Kristen and June Diane Raphael (Felicia in New Fans) together again. #haha#

Uh, she also had a MAIN part in this little thing called Flight of the Conchords. Y'know, the world-wide-popular, award-winning, hilarious comedy show. Plus she also worked with another co-star Jemaine in Dinner For Schmucks too. How could they leave out such a big part of her resume? #shrug#

Not that I'm bitter or anything #excited#

p.s. The show sounds good. I vaguely remember hearing about the original over here, but didn't watch it. I tend to be more into American comedy than British. I'll watch this one, especially because Kristen is in it.
