‘Zoolander 2’ Star Cyrus Arnold Lands Lead in ABC Pilot ‘Chunk and Bean’ (Exclusive)

Andy Daly and Anna Gun already cast in comedy

“Zoolander 2” star Cyrus Arnold has landed the lead role in ABC comedy pilot “Chunk & Bean,” TheWrap has learned.

“Chunk & Bean,” from writers and executive producers Ed Herro and Brian Donovan, is about two friends who benefit from having two very different sets of parents living next door to each other.

Arnold will play the role of Chunk. Andy Daly and Anna Gunn play his parents, and other cast members include Hassie Harrison as Chunk’s older sister and Adam Rodriguez as Jim Rogerson.

Arnold’s character, Brian Dawson, a.k.a. Chunk, is a hefty, teenage curmudgeon with 10 percent of his ample girth devoted to the giant chip on his shoulder. His favorite things in the world are sarcasm, cheesecake and angering his mother.

Dave Hemingson is also executive producer.

Arnold is most known for his role as Ben Stiller‘s son in “Zoolander 2,” which is currently in theaters. He is represented by AKA Talent, Crackerjack Management and Principato-Young.
