Jake Johnson To Co-Star On New ABC Drama Series ‘Stumptown’ In Recasting

New Girl alum Jake Johnson has been tapped as one of the male leads opposite star Cobie Smulders and Michael Ealy. in Stumptown, ABC’s new fall 2019 drama series from ABC Studios. For Johnson, who was sought this past pilot season, this marks the first regular role on a live-action series since New Girl ended its seven-season run on Fox in May 2018.

On Stumptown, Johnson will play Grey McConnell in a recasting. He replaces Mark Webber who played the role in the pilot.

Written by Jason Richman based on the graphic novel series, Stumptown follows Dex Parios (Smulders) – a strong, assertive and sharp-witted Army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt and a brother to take care of in Portland, Or. Her military intelligence skills make her a great Pi, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police.
