Funches will play Ron, an I.T. guy “who works at RetCon Insurance Co., which specializes in coverage against damage caused by Super Heroes. Ron is a sweet and innocent guy who, unlike his co-workers, has not lost his childlike enthusiasm for all things Super Hero.”
Vanessa Hudgens, Alan Tudyk, Danny Pudi and Christina Kirk star in “Powerless,” which comes from writer and executive producer Ben Queen.
Funches, who has developed a fanbase for his easygoing and innocent comic persona, also has appeared on “New Girl,” “Conan,” “The Kroll Show” and his own half-hour special “Comedy Central Presents Ron Funches.”
