Chris Pine is quickly becoming TV’s favorite guest star. Ever since his hilarious turn as Eric on Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, the actor’s channeled Hannibal Elector as Dr. Thomas Hornbein on the new season of Angie Tribeca and earned his first-ever Emmy nomination for his voice work on the Crackle stop-animated series SuperMansion, which returned for a second season in February.
The series, which follows the adventures of Titanium Rex (Bryan Cranston, who also serves as executive producer) and his struggles living with and fighting alongside Millennial-aged members of The League of Freedom, features an A-list cast of recurring and guest voice actors, including Keegan-Michael Key, Community’s Yvette Nicole Brown, Dax Shepard and J.K. Simmons.
On the season two finale, which premieres Thursday, April 20, Pine returns as the villainous mad scientist, Dr. Devizo, who at the beginning of the season destroyed the SuperMansion and later co-founded the Injustice Club. In ET’s exclusive clip from the episode, Dr. Devizo argues with Lex Lightning (Jillian Bell) over who’s actually in charge as Titanium Rex explains the destructive power of the coveted Anti-Magno Rod.
Will all these super beings ever get along? Fans may find out when the show returns for a season three. On Wednesday, ahead of the finale, Crackle announced the Emmy-nominated series will return for another season in 2018 and will produce two all-new specials, set to debut this fall and early next year.
"It’s been an incredible ride creating SuperMansion with the team at Crackle,” co-creator Zeb Wells said in a statement. “We can’t wait to bring these imperfect heroes back for more fun at the mansion.”
Following the finale of SuperMansion, Pine is set to make his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live on May 6 as the sketch-comedy series airs live in all time zones. And one cannot forget Pine’s role as Steve Trevor in the highly anticipated Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot as the titular superhero. The film hits theaters on June 2.
