Pop singer-turned-reality TV hero Nick Lachey can add sitcom star to his resume, after signing up to play an errand boy in Gina Gershon's new comedy series.

Lachey, who is married to Jessica Simpson, has been cast in the pilot for HOT MAMMA, in which BOUND beauty Gershon will also star as a wedding planner and single mother.

The 30-year-old will play a struggling actor who runs errands for Gershon's character, her daughter and their housekeeper in exchange for free rent.

Along with the sitcom, Lachey has also teamed with his wife for a variety special, which will air next month (APR04).

Meanwhile, Simpson has a sitcom pilot in the works too - she will play a ditzy news reporter in STARRING JESSICA SIMPSON AS...JESSICA SAMPSON.
