Leslie Bibb joins Matthew Perry’s ‘Odd Couple’ remake

Leslie Bibb has signed on for a recurring role in the upcoming CBS and Matthew Perry remake of Odd Couple.

The Popular actress will play Casey, who is a professional model and roommate to character Emily, played by Lindsay Sloane, TVLine first reported. Her character is used to getting her way and is currently looking for an easy relationship.

Bibb recently had roles in the television series The Following and About a Boy.

The midseason comedy remake of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple stars Perry as the slobby Oscar Madison and Thomas Lennon will play uptight Felix Unger.

Community‘s Yvette Nicole Brown replaced Sarah Baker, who departed from the project. Brown will play Oscar’s assistant.

The remake has struggled to retain the cast as of late, which isn’t a particularly good thing to hear of a series, as Georgia King also departed. The Wire‘s Wendell Pierce and Lindsay Sloane did decide to stay.

In addition to starring, Perry is an executive producer and co-wrote the script with Frasier alum Joe Keenan.
