Confirmation has arrived that Eddie Cibrian will replace newcomer Jeff Hephner in NBC’s upcoming pilot, Playboy.
Playboy follows Nick Dalton (Cibrian), a Chicago attorney in 1963 who is a key-holder at the Playboy club and has ties to organized crime. Amber Heard, Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Naturi Naughton have been cast as Playboy bunnies. David Krumholtz co-stars as the club’s general manager.
The decision to recast reportedly came after the first table read. Hmmm wonder what LeAnn Rimes thinks of this role?
