The Hard Times of RJ Berger star Jayson Blair has boarded Ryan Murphy's upcoming NBC comedy pilot, New Normal. He is guest starring on the pilot, with a chance to take on a major recurring role if the studio picks up the show.

The pilot follows a gay couple and the surrogate who will carry their baby.

The actor will portray Clay, who has a Midwestern feel, is dangerously sexy and is entitled, even though he peaked in high school. Ellen Barkin plays the surrogate's splashy mother. Andy Rannells and Justin Bartha play the gay couple with Georgia King as the surrogate.

Ryan Murphy is directing and producing the project with Dante Di Loreto and Ali Adler.

This project is still in development.
