Andy Samberg’s Cop Show Keeps Sounding Better and Better – Joe Lo Truglio Joins the Cast
Joe Lo Truglio, of The State, Reno 911!, and Superbad fame, has been added to the cast of Andy Samberg’s new Fox pilot, cementing its status as the most anticipated comedy pilot of 2013. Lo Truglio is the final series regular to join the untitled New York cop show, created by Parks and Recreation co-creator/showrunner Mike Schur and longtime Parks writer Dan Goor. He’ll be playing Charles, a divorced veteran detective who looks up to top cop Jake (Samberg). The rest of the impressive cast is made up of Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris), Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age), stand-up Chelsea Peretti, and relative newcomers Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz. With this cast and creative team, it seems like the show is a shoo-in for the fall lineup. It’s Parks and Rec with guns, what’s not to like?
