Yet another British actor is filling the American pilot landscape.

"Master and Commander" actor James D'Arcy has signed on to star in CBS' drama pilot "The Eastmans," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Additionally, Dash Mihok has joined the network's comedy pilot "The Fish Tank."

"Eastmans" revolves around a dysfunctional family full of doctors, who no doubt have stomach-turning conversations around the dinner table. D'Arcy will play a successful vascular surgeon and the eldest of the five Eastman kids. His parents will be played by Donald Sutherland and Jacqueline Bisset.

Saffron Burrows, Gaby Hoffman and Jesse Bradford have also been cast.

"The Fish Tank" centers on a teenager (Drake Bell) who has wacky times while he lives alone in his family home. Mihok will play a wacky neighbor.
