Sarah Michelle Gellar Lands Robin Williams' CBS Pilot
SMG plays the comic actor's daughter on the sitcom project.
Sarah Michelle Gellar may be TV's next funny girl.
A spokesperson for 20th Century Fox TV confirms to Celebuzz that the 35-year-old actress has been cast to play Robin Williams’ daughter on a new CBS sitcom pilot produced by David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal), as first reported by Deadline.
Crazy Ones will tell the story of an advertising agency exec (Williams) and his creative director daughter.
Crazy Ones will mark the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star's first major gig since giving birth to her second child, Rocky James, last September.
Williams, 61, was last seen -- heard -- in 2011’s animated hit Happy Feet Two. The actor has at least three pictures coming out this year, including The Butler, in which he plays Dwight D. Eisenhower, and The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, opposite Mila Kunis.
