Danielle Nicolet To Join Edi Gathegi In ABC Pilot For “White Van Man”

Danielle Nicolet To Join Edi Gathegi In ABC Pilot For "White Van Man"

It’s going to be difficult (thankfully) to complain about the lack of diversity on TV this year if a lot of the pilots that have cast black actors in the past few weeks get picked up by the networks.  And ABC just made it a little more difficult with the casting of Danielle Nicolet for their pilot, White Van Man.

White Van Man, a comedy based on the UK format of the same name, is about Tony (Kyle Bornheimer), who is forced to put his dreams on hold in order to take over the family handyman business from his father.  Deadline is reporting that Nicolet (3rd Rock From The Sun, The Starter Wife) will play the sister of one of Tony’s co-workers.

And seeing how S&A’s Courtney told us last month that Edi Gathegi had landed the part of Tony’s co-worker, one can easily assume that Nicolet and Gathegi have been cast as siblings.

The problem isn't just that lack of diversity for non-white actors. It's the fact that those actors are never given the same amount of good material or even picked for lead/center position on shows


I am glad to see that Danielle Nicolet is working. Have not seen her in a good while. Hopefully, the pilot gets picked up.
