Donald Sutherland Joins Fox’s NPR-set Comedy

Donald Sutherland has joined the pilot of Fox's single-camera comedy Living Loaded, from It's Always Sunny's Rob McElhenney, Deadline reports. The show, based on Playboy writer Dan Dunn's book, centers a hard-partying blogger — it's like looking in a mirror — who cleans up his act when he gets a job at the NPR station his dad runs. Mike Vogel will play the son, and Sutherland will play said dad, which means we could someday see both their faces among the Babes of NPR. (We're guessing they take fictional NPR folk, too.)
