MacGruber - Billy Zane, Joseph Lee Anderson & Timothy V. Murphy Join Cast

In a recasting, Billy Zane (True Story, Titanic) has joined the cast of MacGruber, Peacock’s eight-episode action comedy series based on Will Forte’s recurring MacGyver parody sketch on Saturday Night Live and its 2010 cult movie offshoot. Joseph Lee Anderson (Young Rock, Harriet) also is set for a recurring role, and Timothy V. Murphy (Westworld, True Detective) will reprise his role from the film of the same name in the series from Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, and Broadway Video.

Zane’s Queeth is one of MacGruber’s mortal enemies. Long thought dead, he has resurfaced to carry out a heinous plot to destroy the world, and in the process, claim his revenge against MacGruber. Zane replaces Mickey Rourke, who exited the project before filming began.

Anderson will play Major Harold Kernst, the right-hand man of General Fasoose (Fishburne), who is responsible for overseeing MacGruber on a life-threatening mission.

Murphy will reprise his role from the film as Constantine Bach, Dieter von Cunth’s ruthless henchman, who has returned to seek revenge against MacGruber.
