News broke of Jake Johnson’s casting in Stumptown, the TV adaption of the Oni Press comics written by Greg Rucka coming to ABC this Fall. He’ll replace actor Mark Webber to play Grey McConnell, Dex Parios’ ex and best friend, according to Deadline and other sources.
Jake Johnson should play great off of Cobie Smulders, given their combined comedic chops. ABC demonstrates a lot of faith in Stumptown to cast a big name after already bringing it to series. The trailer was great and this news further suggests we should expect good things from the series.
