STUMPTOWN Casts Jake Johnson As Star Alongside Cobie Smulders


In a casting change, Jake Johnson (New Girl) will be starring alongside Cobie Smulders in Stumptown.

The show follows Dex Parios (Smulders), described as a strong, assertive, and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt, and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great P.I., but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police.

Johnson will play Grey McConnell, Dex’s best friend. The series also stars Tantoo Cardinal as Sue Lynn Blackbird, Cole Sibus as Ansel Parios, Adrian Martinez as Tookie, Camryn Manheim as Lieutenant Cosgrove, and Michael Ealy as Det. Miles Hoffman.

The ABC drama series is based on a graphic novel series of the same name.
