T.J. Miller, Thomas Middleditch cast in “Silicon Valley” HBO’s dark comedy

PanARMENIAN.Net - Actor-comedians T.J. Miller (Yogi Bear) and Thomas Middleditch (The Campaign) have been cast in Silicon Valley, HBO’s single-camera dark comedy pilot, Deadline said.

Silicon Valley is set in the high tech gold rush of modern Silicon Valley, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. Miller will play Erlich, the owner of the Hacker House. His intelligence is sometimes eclipsed by his imperious self-satisfaction; he is the big fish in the small pond he created and is almost totally self-unaware. Middleditch will play Thomas who is focused, idealistic, and brilliant when writing code for software, and awkward and none too confident when dealing with life. Thomas is a budding tech wizard that came from St. Louis to make it in the high tech gold rush that is Silicon Valley.

Mike Judge will direct the pilot.
