thuneActor-comedian-musician Nick Thune is set as the young male lead opposite Natasha Lyonne in NBC‘s single-camera comedy pilot Old Soul. Co-created by Amy Poehler, Josh Bycel and Jonathan Fener and directed by David Wain, Old Soul centers on a reformed wild child, Nadia (Lyonne), who has a business caring for the elderly and feels she has more in common with her colorful old clients than she does with people her age. Thune, repped by 3 Arts and WME, will play Nadia’s roommate and friend who shares her offbeat sense of humor.
