Elisha Cuthbert cast as lesbian lead in “One Big Happy”


One Big Happy has found its leading lady! The Ellen DeGeneres-produced and Liz Feldman-written NBC pilot has cast Elisha Cuthbert as Lizzy, the lesbian best friend of a straight guy (Nick Zano), who decide to have a baby together. Things are uncomplicated enough, until he meets the love of his love.

Perhaps it was Elisha’s spot-on Ellen impression on Conan that sealed the deal.

Or the time she dressed like Ellen to impress her female date on Happy Endings. Oh how I miss that show!


Elisha is also known for her work on 24, The Forgotten and The Girl Next Door. She worked with out director Jaime Babbit on The Quiet in 2005. Most of her work prior to Happy Endings was fairly dramatic, and the ABC comedy gave her a chance to show us her comical chops. She’s definitely got them, and we can’t wait to see her back on our screens should NBC pick up One Big Happy to series.
