The Wet Hot American Summer gang is coming back to Netflix again, for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, premiering Aug. 4. The gang from the 2001 cult comedy movie hit made their first triumphant return to Netflix in 2015 with the prequel, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Now, the reunion that was teased in the original movie is finally coming to fruition, thanks to the new series. Of course the Camp Firewood crew is back, but there are also some new campers and counselors in the mix, including a camp cool kid who reminds Andy a lot of himself. Who plays Deegs in Wet Hot American Summer?
According to Deadline, Deegs, played by Skyler Gisondo, is the new bad boy counselor. Basically, 10 years have passed at Camp Firewood, and Jeremy “Deegs” Deegenstein is the new Andy — not that anyone could really replace Paul Rudd. Andy and most of the characters from the original film are returning to their old stomping grounds, still expecting to be the big dogs. A trailer for the series shows Andy and Deegs facing off. Andy obviously doesn't like the idea of being dethroned. To be honest, he doesn't take many things well.
I mean, who can top "teen" angst like that? Deegs has some big shoes to fill. But, Gisondo is up for the challenge. At 21, he's already an experienced actor who you may recognize from some of his previous performances. Here are some of the places you could have seen Firewood's new stud before:
