LOS ANGELES, March 18 (UPI) -- U.S. actor Kevin Dillon has been cast opposite David Hornsby in a comedy pilot based on the book, "How to Be a Gentleman," CBS said.

The three-time Emmy Award nominee is best known for his work on HBO's series "Entourage," which is wrapping up its eighth and final season this summer.

Zap2it.com described "Gentleman" as a buddy comedy about two former high-school classmates with completely different personalities and outlooks on life.

Hornsby wrote the pilot and will star in it. He also will serve as co-showrunner with "Friends" executive producer Adam Chase, Zap2it.com said Friday.
