Beginnings of a Trend?

I've noticed several cable dramas have cast comic actors for dramatic roles.

Spotted:  Dana Gould and Simon Pegg on Mob City.

Spotted:  Dave Foley and Will Sasso on Justified.  (Last season had Mike O'Malley and Patton Oswalt.)

Those are just two examples, but I bet ten years ago, none of these guys would have even gotten auditions much less the part.

Things in TV have changed, man.
