Mercedes Ruehl has joined the cast of Fox pilot El Jefe.

The comedy will focus on Josh (Ryan Hansen), a 30-year-old man who is forced to move in with his old nanny.

Ruehl has been cast as the nanny Delmi Rodriguez, Deadline reports.

The actress was also recently cast in the second season of HBO's horse-racing drama Luck, but the show was scrapped last week following a series of animal casualties.

She has also filmed a role in ABC drama pilot Last Resort, while her past credits include roles on Frasier, Entourage and Psych.

Jessica Camacho (Dexter) has also joined El Jefe as Lucia, the girlfriend of Delmi's son (Victor Rasuk).

The pilot, which has been in development since August 2011, is from Moses Port and David Guarascio (Happy Endings).
