Holding himself far from the risk of being typecast, Bill Hader is apparently going to play an ex-Marine-turned-Midwest-hitman-turned-theatre-lover. Deadline reports that the former SNL-er is attached to write, direct, executive produce, and star in Barry, a half-hour comedy pilot HBO has ordered. Hader will play a former Marine who finds himself dissatisfied with his life as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest; on a trip to L.A. for a job, he ends up finally finding acceptance in Los Angeles's would-be theatre acting scene. In related news: Bill Hader has for now been spared doing a semi-autobiographical network sitcom titled Love Her or Hader. Hooray for both these things!
