Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley pilot has signed two actors to play very different roles. Glory Daze’s Josh Brener and The Office’s Lindsey Broad have joined the pilot in the single camera comedy that is set to be executive produced by Scott Rudin, John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, and Judge himself.
The comedy will be pretty dark and will follow a group of hackers living in the particular valley mentioned in the title "where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success." According to Deadline, Brener and Broad will co-star in the series, although one of them will get a better character name than the other.
Let’s start with the sort-of normal named character. Broad will play Tandy, a young lady looking for love, but also a comfortable life. She’s not the type to go to any lengths to get what she wants, however. She’s described as loyal and not a cheater. In the silly nicknames department, Brener will play Big Head, a character who still rolls with the nickname he earned in middle school and who joins the hacker community after creating an app that tracks women who are sporting erect nipples. That app seems like it would fit well in the world of Idiocracy.
HBO announced the Silicon Valley comedy was in the works just a couple of months ago and in the time since, the network has already signed on a few names, including comedian and actor T.J. Miller andFun Size’s Thomas Middleditch. We’ll let you know if any other big castings waft our way.
Amazing Race & Top Chef superfan with a pinch of Disney fairy dust thrown in. If you’ve created a rom-com I’ve probably watched it.
