Ever watch The Last Starfighter? Well, this upcoming Hulu comedy is a self-aware riff on that 1984 sci-fi flick. It’s filled with time travel, dance battles, herpes and Josh Hutcherson. All my favorite things 😉
Future Man stars the 24-year-old actor as Josh Futturman, a janitor by day and world-ranked gamer by night who travels through time to prevent the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion. Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings), Derek Wilson (Preacher), Ed Begley Jr. (St. Elsewhere) and Glenne Headly (Don Jon) also star.
All episodes of Future Man arrive on Hulu on November 14. Check out the trailer below. Apparently, Josh is the man behind Michael Jackson’s iconic moonwalk.
