Mike Epps Will Play A Manchild In ABC’s ‘Uncle Buck’ Pilot

Mike Epps is taking the lead in ABC’s new comedy pilot.

Based on the John Hughes film, Uncle Buck finds Epps as Buck Russell, described as a “childish man who learns how to be an adult by taking care of his brother Will’s kids in a very childish way” by Deadline.

But wait, there’s more! Longtime Hollywood bae Nia Long will also star as Buck’s brother’s wife, while Will Packer, responsible for blockbuster hits Think Like A Man and Ride Along, will be on board as producer.
