• Ali Liebert has been cast in both Sook-Yin Lee’s Year of the Carnivore and the upcoming Cuba Gooding Jr. feature Hardwired. Liebert – who will also be seen this spring in the ensemble cast of the CBS drama Harper’s Island – will play a ‘babe with a brain’ lead role in Carnivore, appearing with Cristin Milioti and Will Sasso. The picture marks Lee’s directing debut and is a B.C./Ontario coproduction by Screen Siren Pictures and The Film Farm. In Hardwired, the Vancouver-based actress will appear alongside Gooding and Val Kilmer. Liebert is represented by Elena Kirschner at Red Management. Her credits include Dead Like Me, The 4400 and a recurring role on Kyle XY.

• Canadian comic Harland Williams has been hired by U.S. cable channel TBS to host The TBS Comedy Roadshow, an upcoming vaudeville-themed reality TV series. The Time Warner channel bought a half-hour pilot from TBS Productions that features Williams (Dumb & Dumber, Rocketman) in a cross-country search of regional theaters and vaudeville shows for the funniest American. The Toronto-born, L.A.-based funnyman will return home this summer to direct Wingman, the $10-million Canadian comedy that he co-wrote, and which is to be produced by Toronto-based Stardust Pictures. He is repped by APA Artists Management.
