CBS Tickets Cross and Christensen for 'Hell'

CBS' late-charging comedy pilot "I'm in Hell" has added a pair of familiar faces in supporting roles.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Erika Christensen and David Cross have signed on for the comedy, which stars Jason Biggs.

Picked up several weeks behind the typical development schedule, "I'm in Hell" focuses on a successful Wall Street broker who has an unfortunate Blackberry-related accident and ends up facing eternal damnation. Unfortunately, Hell is full, so he's sentenced to Hell-on-Earth in Manhattan.

Christensen, whose drama "Six Degrees" was just pulled from ABC's line-up for the second time, will play another member of the Hell-on-Earth outreach program, a possible love interest for Biggs' character. Her other credits include "Traffic," "Flightplan" and "Swimfan."

Cross is set to appear as Scott, the designated emissary-from-hell for the main character. A writing Emmy winner from his time on "The Ben Stiller Show," Cross' in-front-of-the-camera credits include "Mr. Show with Bob and Dave" and "Arrested Development."

In other casting news, Janina Gavankar ("The L Word") will appear in The CW comedy "Dash 4 Cash," a scripted show about teams participating in a racing reality show.
