February is turning out to be a good month for those of us who've never stopped loving Felicity. First, Shawn Ryan cast Scott Speedman (Ben!) for his potential new ABC drama The Last Resort.  Then Deadline reported that Greg Grunberg  (Sean!) had landed a CBS comedy pilot from Greg Berlanti. Now Vulture hears that Scott Foley (Noel!) is set to join the cast of The Goodwin Games, the eagerly anticipated Fox comedy pilot from How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. He'll play the eldest sibling on the show, which revolves around a trio of brothers and sisters who reconnect following the death of a parent. Already cast in the pilot: Ugly Betty alum Becki Newton; Peyton Reed will direct. Now if only somebody would come up with a good part to lure Keri Russell back to the small screen.
