John C. Reilly Is Returning as Dr. Steve Brule in Adult Swim Special ‘Bagboy’
Great news for fans of John C. Reilly’s Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule: Dr. Brule is getting his very own Adult Swim special next month. According to Entertainment Weekly, Reilly will return as Brule in a half-hour special called Bagboy set to air on Friday, February 20th at 12:30am. Here’s what we can expect from the all-Brule special:
Several years ago, Brule starred in a sitcom pilot titled Bagboy about the employees and customers of Meyer’s Superfoods. In this pilot, he plays a bag boy who attempts to thwart a shoplifter while vying for the affections of a cashier named Daisy. Alas, Channel 5 ultimately shelved the show “due to its substandard quality and low entertainment value.”
Reilly co-wrote and executive produced Bagboy with Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, and you can check out a sneak peek clip over at EW.
