Nelson’s Middleditch to appear in HBO comedy series

Former Nelsonite Thomas Middleditch will appear in the long-waited comedy series Silicon Valley debuting April 6 on HBO. But this weekend, you can get a first look at the show’s trailer (viewer discretion is advised).

“What if we built our own company,” says Middleditch in the teaser as he claims to be one of the types of guys often beat up and bullied.

The series is a dark comedy and a mocking take on the tech scene in Silicon Valley created by Mike Judge of Beavis and Butthead and Office Space fame. Along with co-creators John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky, the series follows a misfit group as they tackle the day-to-day life in the computer world.

Middleditch, an L.V. Rogers graduate and once Capitol Theatre actor, plays introverted programmer Richard. His co-stars are Josh Brener, Martin Starr, Kumail Nanjaini and T.J. Miller.

Middleditch has popped up on several television series including The Office and had a minor role in Oscar nominated film Wolf of Wall Street.
