Dane Cook has signed up for NBC comedy pilot Next Caller Please.

The comedian will play a sexist DJ at a satellite radio station who is joined by a new feminist co-host, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Collette Wolfe will portray Cook's character's co-host Stella, while Joy Osmanski will star as a producer who signs Stella to the show.

In December 2011, Cook announced that he had put his stand-up comedy career on hold to work on acting projects.

He has previously appeared in the films My Best Friend's Girl and Dan in Real Life.
