Stand-up comedian Patton Oswalt has quit Matthew Broderick's new sitcom BEACH LANE - just days after he was cast.
An announcement on Monday (12Apr10) revealed the funnyman had won a starring role in the comedy alongside the Ferris Bueller's Day Off star and comic actress Kristen Johnston.
Oswalt was set to portray a slacker who runs a flagging small-town newspaper and hires Broderick, who plays a journalist, to revive the company.
Producers are said to have offered Oswalt another role in the show but it is unclear if he will accept, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
