Adam DeVine is set to star in the upcoming comedy series Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin, appearing in the show as Bumper Allen. He played the role in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. He’s also worked on movies like The Intern, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Why Him?, When We First Met, Game Over, Man!, The Package, Isn’t It Romantic, Jexi, Magic Camp, and Extinct. He is set to appear in an upcoming comedy movie titled The Out-Laws, which is currently being filmed. DeVine has also frequently appeared on different TV shows, having guested on hit comedy series like Community and Arrested Development. Adam had a recurring role in the mockumentary series Modern Family. Currently, he stars in The Righteous Gemstones, alongside Danny McBride, John Goodman, and Edi Patterson. In an interview reported by Collider, DeVine revealed that he was surprised that he was being asked to reprise his role in a TV series, this time with him starring in the project.
He said: “No way in hell did I think this was gonna be a thing that was gonna happen. I wouldn’t have thought of it, in a million years, but I always loved playing that character. I never shot down or poo-pooed the idea. So, when that opportunity came around, I was like, ‘I think this could be a really fun thing to try.’ And so, we’re already deep in the process. We have scripts coming out. At the top of the New Year, I’m gonna head off to Germany and become Bumper Allen once again.” Talking about how he’d like his character to develop in the series, DeVine said: “I’m excited to see him grow a little bit. Bumper was pretty one-dimensional. He was just a maniac. And then, in the second movie, you see a little crack in the facade of a guy that is just so insecure that he has to put on this little Butterball of braggadocio. He’s this little guy who’s just singing and dancing and is way too intense for his own good, and obviously there’s some underlying insecurity there. So, I’m excited to watch him. What happened in those seven or eight years between the last time we saw him to now. I’m assuming quite a bit. I’m really excited that the scripts are coming in great. Megan Amram, who was a producer on The Good Place and Parks and Rec, is showrunning the show and she’s doing an amazing job. I’m excited to shoot that.”
