Jeff Goldblum has officially cemented his status as Hollywood's "Go-To Hot Hebrew," having just been cast as Sarah Silverman's ex-boyfriend of ten years in the pilot for her new NBC comedy, Susan 313.

The comedy is reportedly about a "woman readjusting to single life following a decade long live-in relationship" and  "is loosely based on Silverman's life," as per The Hollywood Reporter. (Which makes one wonder about a possible Jimmy Kimmel connection.)

Silverman re-teams with scribes Dan Sterling and Jon Schroeder, who contributed to her popular series The Sarah Silverman Program. Executive  producers on the upcoming comedy include Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo, with Ken Kwapis set to direct.

Goldblum will be joining Tig Notaro, Ken Leung, Harris Wittels and June Raphael. If Susan 313 is picked up as a series, it is likely that he will appear in some sort of recurring role.

In addition to having already secured the undying devotion of legions of fanboys (and girls) based on memorable turns in films like THE FLY, JURASSIC PARK, and INDEPENDENCE DAY, the swarthy semite's unique, broadly appreciated brand of cerebral sex-appeal  penetrates beyond sexually orientated lines; Goldblum recently appeared on Glee as Hiram Berry, one of Gleek Rachel Berry's two gay fathers (the other being Brian Stokes Mitchell).
