Danny Pudi, Alan Tudyk and Christina Kirk Join NBC’s ‘Powerless’

Feb 24, 2016


Today, The Hollywood Reporter announced several new names have joined the cast of NBC’s and DC Comics Powerless work-place comedy. They have announced that Community alum Danny Pudi has joined the cast along with A Star Wars Story: Rogue One star Alan Tudyk and A to Z star Christina Kirk. They join Vanessa Hudgens who plays the lead character Emily Locke.

Tudyk, is set to play Del, Emily’s new boss in the claims department. Del has just been promoted — not through any merit of his own, but because he’s the owner’s son. A self-proclaimed “rich, overeducated globetrotting wastrel,” Del is a power-mad disastrous dictator of a boss.

Pudi, will play Teddy, Emily’s best friend at work and her trusted confidante. He spends his days creating time-wasting pranks as a way to make their office, the “least super place on earth,” just a little less “unsuper.” The casting brings the actor back to NBC, where Community started its run before wrapping up at Yahoo.

Kirk, will portray Jackie. A fan of superheroes, Jackie has plastered her office cubicle with beefcake shots of super guys. New claims department boss Del makes Jackie his personal assistant, and she begins buckling under his unreasonable and impossible demands.

Powerless will debut on NBC
