'Suburgatory': Does Parker Young's pilot mean Ryan Shay is leaving Chatswin?
TVLine reports Young has booked a series regular role in a single-camera military-themed project from "Cougar Town" co-creator Kevin Biegel. Young would play one of three brothers who work together on a small army base in Florida, and the part is in "first position" to his gig with "Suburgatory." Geoff Stults ("The Finder") is also in the cast.
It sounds like Young's role as "a gung ho soldier with a heart of gold who unfortunately has a habit of destroying really expensive military equipment" isn't that far off from Ryan Shay.
Although Young has never been a full-time regular on ABC's "Suburgatory," his character has been very prominent in Season 2 in an ongoing storyline involving his relationship with Tessa Altman (leading lady Jane Levy). High school senior Shay is expected to graduate this year, which would make it easier for the show to write him out if necessary.
