Deadline reports that comedian Bill Engvall and 'Outsourced' actor Ben Rappaport will star in the upcoming TBS pilot DO IT YOURSELF. The actors will join previously announced cast members Melora Hardin and Ryan McPartlin in the multi-camera project. 'Two and a Half Men' director James Widdoes will helm the comedy from a script by Walt Becker and Rob Long.The workplace comedy will follow Nick Porter (Rappaport), a "20-something laid-off math teacher who finds himself thrust into the blue collar world when he gets a job at that most American of retail institutions: the big box home supply store." Engvall will portray his co-worker Dale, described as "an executive with 30 years of experience who was once a senior vice president at Circuit City but has been reduced to minimum wage since his company went belly-up."Rappaport, who recently made his Broadway debut in Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Picnic, starred on NBC's short-lived comedy 'Outsourced' and will next be seen in feature film The Brass Teapot. The pilot marks Bill Engvall's return to TBS where his Bill Engvall Show ran for three seasons after debuting with 3.9 million viewers.
