You might get to see Peter Serafinowicz dole out mighty blue justice and yell the word spoon, as Deadline reports the English actor has signed on as the titular superhero of Amazon’s Tick pilot. (You’ll recognize him from such gems as Parks & Rec, Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Peter Serafinowicz Show.) As previously noted, this means veteran Tick Patrick Warburton relinquishes the iconic suit, but he’s expected to still help as an exec producer. Griffin Newman will also yell, “Not in the face,” alongside Serafinowicz as Arthur, and Valorie Curry will play Arthur’s sister, Dot. Wally Pfister (Transcendence) will reportedly helm the pilot, which is expected to continue in the same vein as franchise creator Ben Edlund’s 2001 live-action comedy. Spoon!
