Prior last year’s Promising Young Woman, it had been a little bit since we last saw Bo Burnham stepping in front of the camera. But now it seems that he’ll be going back once again.
Today, it was announced that Burnham had been cast as Larry Bird in a new HBO series. Directed/produced by another funny person turned serious Adam McKay, the show follows the professional and personal lives of the 1980’s Los Angeles Lakers.
Burnham will be in good company as the all-star cast playing NBA all-stars includes Jason Segal, Adrien Brody, Sally Field, Michael Chiklis, John C. Reilly, Jason Clarke, Quincy Isaiah, Solomon Hughes, Gaby Hoffmann, Hadley Robinson, DeVaughn Nixon, Molly Gordon, Rob Morgan, Spencer Garrett, Kirk Bovill, Delante Desouza, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Tamera Tomakili, and Joey Brooks.
No word on when the show is coming out, but with a cast this good, we can’t wait!
