The <i>Better Off Ted</i> star will play an ambitious heart surgeon Despite any official word on Better Off Ted's cancellation, it seems the show's star has found a new gig. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay Harrington has been cast as the lead for the new NBC pilot Nathan vs. Nurture.

Harrington will play a dedicated, overachieving heart surgeon, who reunites with his birth father and slacker brothers 35 years after his adoption. It was said that the gig is technically in second position to ABC's Better Off Ted, although the series wasn't expected to be renewed.

Another Better Off Ted star, Andrea Anders, was also recently cast in a pilot, ABC's Mr. Sunshine. Harrington also recently joined the voice cast of the animated film A Monster in Paris.
