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.
