William Shatner gets a 'S*** My Dad Says' co-star
Ryan Devlin takes the lead in the Twitter-based CBS comedy pilot
It's one thing for William Shatner
to play a wacky old dad in the CBS
comedy pilot "S*** My Dad Says
," but the story wouldn't be the same if he didn't have a son willing to put those kernels of wisdom up on Twitter
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Devlin
will play the son, presumably based on Twitter feed creator Justin Halpern, who moved back home when he was 29 and tweeted the crazy things his dad (Shatner) said.
"Will & Grace" creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick are executive producing the pilot, which will be written by Halpern, along with Patrick Schumacker, and directed by James Burrows.
You recognize Ryan Devlin, but you may not be sure from what. Well, most recently he's romanced Busy Philipps on "Cougar Town." He's also had arcs on shows including "Big Shots" and "Veronica Mars."
