John Goodman is returning to comedy series. The Roseanne alum has been tapped to co-star in The Station, the Ben Stiller-produced, single-camera comedy pilot for Fox.
Station, from 20th TV, centers on covert CIA operative Eric (Justin Bartha) and his workmates, who are on a mission in Central America to install a new dictator. Goodman will play an old-school CIA veteran who mentors Eric.
David Wain will direct the off-cycle pilot from a script by Kevin Napier.
Goodman, who recently signed on to co-star in HBO Films' You Don't Know Jack opposite Al Pacino and Susan Sarandon, is repped by Gersh.
