Cassidy Freeman (“Smallville,” “Longmire”), Tony Cavalero (“School of Rock”) and Tim Baltz (“Drunk History”) have been cast as series regulars in Danny McBride’s televangelist comedy pilot “The Righteous Gemstones” at HBO.

The story follows a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work, all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. John Goodman stars as the family patriarch with McBride to play his black sheep of an heir.

Freeman will play Amber Gemstone, the wife of Jesse Gemstone (McBride), who gave up a career of her own in journalism to devote herself to the church and her husband.

Cavalero is ex-Satanist Keefe Chambers who was saved from the darkness by Kelvin Gemstone (Adam Devine) and has dedicated his life to serving the Lord and The Gemstones.

Baltz will play BJ, fiancee to Judy Gemstone (Edi Patterson) who struggles to find acceptance within the Gemstone family. McBride created, written, directed and executive produces the series alongside Jody Hill and David Gordon Green.
