Controversial "Seinfeld" actor Michael Richards has been cast in a new sitcom on TV Land, the network announced yesterday.

Richards, 63, nearly dropped out of sight after Nov. 17, 2006, when he inexplicably launched a racist diatribe at the Laugh Factory in LA.

Now, he'll back in front of the camera, shooting TV Land's "Giant Baby," alongside Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman.

"Giant Baby's" pilot will be shot next week, the network said.

The comedy will be about a Broadway star named Maddie Banks, played by Alley, her limo driver, Richards, and best pal and assistant, Perlman.

NY Post has the details here.
