Community‘s Ken Jeong has landed a plum role in ABC’s Spy pilot, playing Rob Corddry’s boss at the Secret Service.
Based on a UK series, Spy follows the well-intentioned, divorced father of a highly intelligent and verbal son (Mockingbird Lane‘s Mason Cook) who inadvertently takes a job at the Secret Service in order to prove himself a worthy dad. Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) will play ex-wife to Corddry.
Jeong’s character, known as The Examiner, was played by Robert Lindsay (Jericho) in the Sky1 version.
Spy is “second position” for Jeong, should NBC’s Community not get renewed for Season 5.
