Oswalt leaves Beach Lane
Stand-up comedian Patton Oswalt has quit Matthew Broderick's new sitcom Beach Lane - just days after he was cast.
Oswalt was set to portray a slacker who runs a flagging small-town newspaper and hires Broderick, who plays a journalist, to revive the company.
Producers are said to have offered Oswalt another role in the show but it is unclear if he will accept, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
