A few weeks ago, ABC announced it would be moving forward with Kevin Hart's pilot, Keep It Togethercontingent on casting. Well, the news came out today that the contingency has been lifted, as Romany Malco has been cast to star. Malco will play an exercise equipment salesman who is trying to develop a friendship with his ex-wife for their kids' sake. Malco and Hart have worked together a bunch, first in 40 Year Old Virgin and most recently in Think Like a Man Too. There's no word yet on who will play the ex-wife and how much Malco will be selling treadmills for.
