Kim Possible is coming back to the Disney Channel in the form of a live-action film, and the network's been hard at work casting the characters of the iconic animated series of the 2000s. Now, Disney has announced it has cast the role of computer whizz Wade Load, and the network decided to stay in-house by snagging an actor from another one of its shows. Disney has cast Issac Ryan Brown of Raven's Home fame to play Kim's tech-savvy friend.
In the original Kim Possible, Wade Load is a 10-year-old college graduate largely responsible for Kim's crime-fighting success. He always had "the sitch" for Kim and Ron via the Kimmunicator, which he created alongside Kim's various other gadgets, and is often the person assigning missions and arranging transportation for the high-school cheerleading captain. Issac Ryan Brown's role may be a bit laid back, as Wade rarely left the comfort of his parent's basement to assist Kim and Ron on missions, although there were a few times he left the house to see his friends. Brown will step into the role originally voiced by Tahj Mowry, the younger brother of the popular twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry.
Issac Ryan Brown joins the Kim Possible cast alongside Sadie Stanley, who will play Kim, as well as The Goldbergs Sean Giambrone who will be playing Ron Stoppable. TVLine reported oher actors attached to the project include Alyson Hannigan, Connie Ray, Todd Stashwick, Taylor Ortega, Erika Tham, and Ciara Wilson. The cast will come together to bring the world of Kim Possible to life with the script provided by the series' original creators, Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley.
Issac Ryan Brown's casting in Kim Possible is yet another role for the accomplished young actor, who has had quite the run in Hollywood. In addition to his role as Booker on Raven's Home, Brown also is the voice of Bingo in the animated series Puppy Dog Pals, Young Dre in Black-ish, and Crisophe in How To Get Away With Murder. No doubt his role in Kim Possible is Disney further investing itself into his career, and while he may not be the star of the show this time around, it would appear the network has big plans for his future.
