Actor/director Clark Johnson (The Wire, The Shield, Nurse.Fighter.Boy) has been cast as one of four leads in Amazon Studios' comedy pilot Animal House.
Johnson joins a cast that already includes John Goodman, Mark Consuelos and Matt Malloy, where the four will play a group of senators living in together in a rented house in Washington DC.
Johnson takes the role of Pennsylvania Senator Robert Bettencourt, "a power player who came from nothing, went to an elite college and watched carefully to learn the game of big city politics," says Deadline.
Alpha House is one of six original comedy pilots being produced by Amazon, part of the company's major foray into original programming, as announced last year.
