Michael Vartan and David Cross are set to play the leads in the comedy "Demoted."
Written by Dan Callahan, "Demoted" will be directed by J.B. Rogers ("American Pie 2") for Parallel Media.
According to Variety, Vartan and Cross will play rivals at a tire store. Vartan plays a hot-shot sales associate who picks on Cross' character until a series of unfortunate circumstances give the less cool employee a chance for revenge.
"Demoted" will begin shooting in September in Michigan.
Vartan was most recently seen on ABC's short-lived "Big Shots." The "Alias" star's feature credits include "Monster-in-Law," "One Hour Photo" and "Rogue."
Beloved as Tobias Funke from "Arrested Development" and from his work on "Mr. Show," Cross was heard this summer in the hit "Kung Fu Panda." He has the Judd Apatow-produced comedy "Year One" opening next year.
