Chuck alum Ryan McPartlin has been cast as in TBS’ comedy pilot Do It Yourself. James Widdoes is directing the multi-camera pilot written by Walt Becker and Rob Long. Do It Yourself tells the story of Nick, a 20-something laid-off math teacher who finds himself thrust into the blue collar world when he gets a job at that most American of retail institutions: the big box home supply store. McPartlin, repped by Evolution and ICM Partners, will play Tyler, a handsome Home Time employee who works in the paint department where he gives several paint demonstrations a week. The John Barrymore of paint, Tyler considers himself an actor and an artist, and really throws himself into his “shows.” Since his five-season stint on NBC’s Chuck as Captain Awesome, McPartlin appeared in Clint Eastwood’s J Edgar biopic and will next stars in the indie The Right Kind of Wrong. »
