Psych’s standout Timothy Omundson has been cast as the evil King Richard in ABC’s single-camera pilot Galavant.
According to Deadline, Omundson has been cast as the second lead opposite Joshua Sasse in Galavant, a comedy fairytale that centers on handsome Prince Galavant (Sasse) and his quest for revenge over the evil King Richard (Omundson).
Galavant is a classic once-upon-a-time hero, complete with sword, horse, great hair, courage, mad skills (like dragon-slaying and helping the poor) who wants revenge over the evil King Richard who stole his one true love, the beautiful Madalena (Mallory Jansen). To Galavant’s shock, Madalena decided she prefers the King and his wealth and power to the love of penniless Galavant.
Dan Fogelman is writing the comedy fairytale and Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken is writing the music. Glenn Slater is penning the lyrics.
