Glenn Howerton Goes With The Id In New Comedy ‘A.P. Bio’


Pretentiousness is not a lovable trait, and it’s great to see when a bit of comeuppance enters the picture. In the new sitcom A.P. Bio, Glenn Howerton is Jack Griffin, a Harvard philosophy scholar who is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio and work as an Advanced Placement biology teacher. Instead of working in the higher echelons of academia, Jack is now employed at Whitlock High School where he butts heads with students, faculty, and Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt).

“When you see someone who thinks so highly of themselves get handled, you get a certain amount of pleasure watching that,” said Howerton.

That being said, having a lack of filter may be somewhat of an admirable quality. “It’s also fun to see a character who is all id,” adds Oswalt. “Whatever he is feeling in the moment, he lets you now. For all of the times in your life when you have to kind of hide (what you’re feeling) – you envy those people. Whatever they feel, they just let it go out. It’s pretty amazing.”

Click on the media bar to hear Howerton talk about how improvising helps enhance the quality of the show, even if many of those moments don’t make it in the final cut.

A.P. Bio premieres February 1 on NBC (9:30/8:30c).

 Series stars, Glenn Howerton and Kaitlin Olson are hyped to hit the road, but not without some reservations. Little concerns like…oh…stamina. But, they’re still diving in regardless of the depth, head first.

Tickets are currently on sale.
