Derek Wilson (Preacher) is set to co-star opposite Josh Hutcherson and Eliza Coupe in Future Man, Hulu’s half-hour comedy pilot from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg & Sony TV, who also are behind Preacher.
Future Man is a high-concept comedy that centers on Josh Futterman (Hutcherson), a janitor by day, world-ranked gamer by night, who is tasked with preventing the extinction of humans after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion. Wilson will play Wolf, a futuristic soldier, another character in the Cybergeddon video game, Wolf is a grizzled, deadly, action hero. After years of fighting, he’s desensitized to violence and human emotion. He’s basically an animal; he’s destructive and lacks hygiene and interpersonal skills but is fiercely loyal to Tiger. Wolf has no respect for Josh and no faith in his ability to carry out the mission.
