Emmy nominee and “Community star” Joel McHale is in talks to join “Quantum and Woody,” the Russo Brothers’ new action/comedy television series adapting the seminal comics title from Valiant Entertainment, TheWrap has exclusively learned.McHale would star as Woody Henderson — a wisecracking, womanizing slacker, who along with his straitlaced adoptive brother, is granted unpredictable superpowers from a pair of energy control bands they find while investigating their father’s death.Casting for the other lead role- – Woody’s African-American adopted brother, Quantum — is expected to follow shortly with several major names circling. Jared Leto is reported to be in negotiations to take the lead in Valiant’s “Bloodshot” feature film at Sony, to be directed by Blur Studios’ Dave Wilson from a script by Oscar-nominated writer Eric Heisserer. Other Valiant projects currently known to the public include a “Harbinger” film set to follow “Bloodshot” at Sony from director Justin Tipping (“Kicks”) and also written by Heisserer; as well as an “Archer & Armstrong” film from director Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) from a script by Terry Rossio (“Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Shrek”); and “Shadowman” from director Reginald Hudlin (“Marshall”) from a script by Adam Simon (“Salem”) and J. Michael Straczynski (“World War Z,” “Thor”).“Quantum and Woody” – “the world’s worst superhero team” — are a bickering pair of interracial, adopted brothers accidentally granted superpowers in a laboratory explosion while investigating the death of their father.[...] when their father’s murder leads them into the throes of a life-altering accident, Eric and Woody will find themselves with a whole new purpose – and a perfectly legitimate reason to wear costumes and fight crime.

Quick: Before President Donald Trump’s childhood home is turned into an historical landmark and presidential museum, book a stay in it on Airbnb. The *ahem* historic property is being rented out to anyone willing to pony up $725 night to stay in Jamaica, Queens. While most visitors to New York City would not jump at the chance to fork over that much cash (after all, rooms at the Trump Soho start at only $275 a night and you can swipe a Trump-branded pen), the historic import makes the trip on the F train worth it.
