Marisa Tomei is Penelope Cloud


CBS has signed Marisa Tomei (Wild Hogs) to topline comedy pilot “The Rich Inner Life of Penelope Cloud,” reports Variety.

Tomei will play the title role in “Penelope Cloud,” starring as a supersmart, opinionated author who’s having trouble delivering the follow-up to her celebrated first novel. After having an epiphany, she tries to recapture her youthful optimism.

Jeff Greenstein (“Desperate Housewives,” “Will & Grace”) wrote the pilot and will executive produce.
