Alan Tudyk is bringing his wry comic stylings to Adult Swim’s Newsreaders. He's taking over for Mather Zickel, who hosted the first season of the mock newsmagazine show/Children’s Hospital spin-off. Zickel won’t be returning for the already-confirmed second season, due to his commitment to the Will Ferrell/Adam McKay sitcom Bad Judge.
Having been recently dropped from being a series regular on Suburgatory, Tudyk will now lead a Newsreaders team that includes returning correspondents Alison Becker, Beth Dover, Dannah Phirman, and Ray Wise. (Kumail Nanjiani, meanwhile, is also moving on to other projects.) Tudyk is best known for his work in Firefly and A Knight’s Tale, as well as for providing the voices of Wreck-It Ralph’s King Candy and Frozen’s Duke of Weselton. For a glimpse at his sarcastic hosting skills, check out his interview with Nathan Fillion below. [via Splitsider.]
