Will Forte Is Finally Getting a Starring Role


Perennial bit player Will Forte is finally getting the chance to play a regular joe instead of a cross-dressing love interest or an out-of-town teetotaler (name those guest roles!). He’ll be starring in Steve Levitan’s new Fox pilot Rebounding as a widower getting over his late wife with help from “the idiots on his pickup basketball team.” No word on who’ll be playing the aforementioned idiots, but with the right cast it sounds like this could be a great ensemble comedy. And who knows, maybe playing the protagonist will turn out to be Will’s forte. (I really need some kind of special sound effect to accompany all these horrible puns.)
