Christopher Mintz-Plasse (How To Train Your Dragon 2) has been cast opposite Joel McHale in The Great Indoors, CBS‘ multi-camera pilot written and executive produced by Mike Gibbons. The comedy, from CBS TV Studios, centers on Joel (McHale), an adventure reporter who must adapt to the times when he becomes boss to a group of millennials in the digital department of their magazine.
Mintz-Plasse will play Clark, one of Joel’s colleagues, a tech/nerd survivalist who knows everything about surviving at sea, in the woods and on Mars but hasn’t left downtown in five years. The cast also includes Shaun Brown and Christine Ko.
Mintz-Plasse, repped by CAA and Principato Young, recently recurred on Netflix’s Flaked.
