Rachel Dratch Joins Jane Krakowski Fox Pilot ‘Dead Boss’


Awesome cast alert: Rachel Dratch – who was originally cast in the role that Jane Krakowski landed on 30 Rock – has been added as a series regular on Fox’s Sharon Horgan series adaptation Dead Boss, Deadline reports. Dratch will play Christine, “Helen’s (Krakowski) cellmate, a sunny but emotionally needy arsonist who will help Helen out of anything, except prison.” Knowing Dratch’s absurd bit parts on 30 Rock – from the cat lady to Blue Dude – this sounds like the perfect role for her. The SNL alum’s most recent role was on Comedy Central’s Broad City as Ilana’s clueless temp agency boss Linda Lodi.
