Cobie Smulders to star in ABC pilot Stumptown
According to The Wrap, Cobie Smulders is set to star in ABC’s Stumptown, a dramatic pilot from Jason Richman and Venom director Ruben Fleischer. Fleischer will executive produce the show, based on the graphic novel series written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Matthew Southworth.
The former How I Met Your Mother star will play Dex Parios, a strong and assertive P.I. who solves the messes of others whilst neglecting her own troubled life. The character is described as “unapologetically sharp-witted” by the trade, a personality that fits Smulders quite nicely.
Along with the aforementioned How I Met Your Mother series, Smulders has enjoyed a recurring role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Agent Maria Hill, who was last seen turning to dust at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Though, the character is expected to play a part in the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. The actress most recently voiced Wonder Woman in The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, and portrayed Mother on Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events.
