Chuck alum Ryan McPartlin has snagged himself yet another life-saving role.
McPartlin will recur on NBC’s upcoming comedy Bad Judge as Billy the Fireman, our sister site Deadline reports. And because men in uniform always get the girl, Billy will be a love interest for Kate Walsh’s Rebecca — though he might find himself at odds with new series regular Ryan Hansen, who’s also a love interest for Rebeeca (aka the luckiest judge ever).
Thanks to The Flash Fan we’ve got almost 200 HQ photos of Kate at the 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.
You get some of the funniest parts in the show. What did you think when you first saw the script?
It’s so rare to find a character that is that great. She’s an amazing crazy person, and they are going to let me play her. How awesome is that. I mean, I get to say “I’ve taken shits I wanna live with more than them.” When I read that scene, I said “I can’t wait to say that line.”
The shoot was strenuous for many for the actors. How long were you there for?
I got off easy, because I’d go back and forth. I was there for a couple of days here and there. I really did miss the polar vortex, and most of my stuff was interior. Martin and Colin (Hanks) and Billy Bob (Thorton) and Allison (Tolman), they shot through a long, brutal winter.
