From Buy More commercials to teaching DIYers how to paint: Ryan McPartlin has a new gig! Deadline reports that Ryan has been cast in the TBS pilot Do It Yourself, a half-hour comedy being developed for a possible series.
Do It Yourself is the story of Nick, a 20-something laid-off math teacher who finds himself thrust into the blue collar world when he gets a job at a big box home supply store, Home Time. (As Best Buy is to the Buy More, Home Depot is to Home Time.) Ryan will play Tyler, a handsome Home Time employee who works in the paint department where he gives several paint demonstrations each week. The “John Barrymore of paint”, Tyler considers himself an actor and an artist, and really throws himself into his “shows.”
