Chris Elliott to star in Cartoon Net pilot

Chris Elliott will play the lead in "Eagleheart," a live-action comedy pilot for Adult Swim, the late-night programing block on Cartoon Network.

"Eagleheart" centers on a low-level television executive sent to Texas to produce an action series of the same name. He finds himself stuck in a never-ending power struggle with his temperamental star/creator/exec producer (Elliott), a veteran action star past his prime who uses the show as a soapbox for his right-wing politics and conservative paranoia.

Elliott's recent TV credits include "How I Met Your Mother" and "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."
