Hulu’s comedy ‘Future Man’ is adding three new recurring roles for its second season.  The ‘Last Starfighter’-esque series, which is executive produced by Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, stars Josh Hutcherson as janitor/gamer Josh Futterman, who beats his favorite video game, ‘Biotic Wars’, only for the games two main characters, Tiger (Eliza Coupe) and Wolf (Derek Wilson) to materialize and recruit him to save the world from the real Biotic Wars..

The second season will welcome Tim Johnson Jr., Jade Catta-Preta and Timothy Horner in recurring roles.  Johnson portrays Jimmy, a former child star who becomes the first boy on Mars.  Catta-Preta’s character is named Level while Horner plays Lathe.  Both are described as “integral member[s] of a unique family group that Wolf becomes a part of thanks to a case of mistaken identity.”  In June, Shaun Brown was announced as being cast in the recurring role of Hatchet, followed by Sara Amini and Rati Gupta in July, as Thimble and Rake.  All three are also members of this “unique family group.”

Tim Johnson Jr. was one of the finalists on FOX’s singing competition show ‘The Four’.  He also appeared in ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ and ‘Fist Fight’.  He has a role in the upcoming horror spoof ‘Meet the Blacks 2: The House Next Door’.  He was previously part of the cast of Jason Alexander’s Audience Network comedy ‘Hit the Road’, ABC’s ‘American Koko’ and Nickelodeon’s ‘Bella and the Bulldogs’.

Jade Catta-Preta may be best recognized for playing Jade on ‘Californication’.  Before that, she headlined the comedic web series ‘Daddy Knows Best’.  She also co-starred on the romantic comedy series ‘Manhattan Love Story’.  She has also made appearances on ‘Modern Family’, ‘The Jim Gaffigan Show’ and ‘Dan Is Dead’.

‘Future Man’ will be Timothy Horner first recurring acting job.  Previously, he made appearances on ‘Andi Mack’, ‘Fresh Off the Boat’, ‘Modern Family’, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’, ‘True Blood’ and ‘Parks and Recreation’.

‘Future Man’ was created by Howard Overman (Netflix’s ‘Crazyhead’), frequent Rogan collaborators Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir (‘Sausage Party’, ‘The Night Before’).  In addition to Hutcherson, the series stars Ed Begley Jr. and Glenne Headley as Josh’s parents Gabe and Diane Futterman.  The first season featured recurring guest appearances by Haley Joel Osment, Paul Scheer and Awkwafina.  The first season consisted of 13 episodes and in January, Hulu ordered 13 more.
