Zap2It and The Hollywood Reporter have announced that Stargate star Beau Bridges has won a role in an untitled comedy pilot from Kristin Newman (“How I Met Your Mother”) for ABC.

Bridges is joining Alyssa Milano and Meagen Fay in the pilot in which Milano, who also had a recurring part on “My Name Is Earl” along with Bridges this season, will play “a woman trying to break free from her overbearing family and unpleasant job.” Bridges will play her dad, who is divorced, while Fay (“Malcolm in the Middle”) will play his new fiancee.

Zap2It described Bridges: “A three-time Emmy winner (including one for ‘My Name Is Earl’), Bridges has also appeared in ‘Stargate SG-1,’ ‘The Fabulous Baker Boys,’ ‘The Agency’ and ‘The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom’ (for which he [won] another Emmy).”
