Did John C. Reilly just become Jerry Buss?

Deadline's Nellie Andreeva reported Tuesday that the 54-year-old actor has replaced Michael Shannon, who departed due to creative differences, to portray Buss in HBO's upcoming pilot about the Los Angeles Lakers during the 1980s.

McKay and Reilly have previously collaborated on Step Brothers, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

The pilot is based upon Jeff Pearlman's book titled Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s.
