Carla Gallo and Jose Zuniga Go to The Station
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carla Gallo and Jose Zuniga have both landed co-starring roles on The Station. This is Ben Stiller's new comedy pilot for 20th Century Fox.
Actor Jordan Peele has been bumped up to a regular on this project.
The Station, which is produced by Fox, is executive produced by Stiller. It focuses on a "covert CIA operative Eric (Justin Bartha) and his workmates, who are on a mission in Central America to install a new dictator."
The hiring of Gallo and Zuniga is part of a recasting initiative on the project. It was originally ordered as a pilot during the last development cycle. Another one of the tweaks has Peele's role as a co-worker at the station. It was originally only a guest-starring role in the pilot.
Gallo is going to play the smart but dopey director of the operatives who manages the officers in the Central America outpost and harbors feelings for Eric.
Zuniga will play the trained field officer who is in charge of the import/export cover office. He wants nothing more than to land a position inside the station.
Gallo, Zuniga and Peele join a cast that includes Bartha, John Goodman and Rob Huebel.
