Former Alias stud Michael Vartan and funny man David Cross have joined Parallel Zide's new comedy Demoted" according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Vartan will play Rodney McAdams, a hotshot Treadline Tires sales associate who delights in tormenting his less-than-cool colleague, Ken (Cross).
But when their boss suddenly dies, Ken is promoted and assigns Rodney to a secretarial job as payback, giving him a taste of his own medicine.
James B. Rogers directs from a screenplay by Dan Callahan.
Cross is very funny and the part seems tailor made. As for Vartan He's not really known as playing smarmy but I think he can pull it off.
