UPROXX 20: Colton Dunn Just Wants To Play ‘Destiny 2’ And Watch U.F.O. Docs All Day


Retail life can be hell. To survive, you need a resident smartass who’s able to find humor in the absurdity of it all, and on Superstore (whose 4th season premieres tonight on NBC at 8PM), that smartass is played by Colton Dunn.

As Garrett McNeill, Dunn’s character is surrounded by hard workers and do-gooders, making him Cloud 9’s slacker king. It’s a role that offers Dunn plenty of chances to shine — something he did previously on Parks And Rec as an oft blazed animal control officer who popped up across six episodes. You may also know him from his appearance in Blockers and multiple appearances on both Comedy Bang! Bang! and Key And Peele, where he worked as a writer. But following your run through of Dunn’s answers to our Upoxx 20 questionnaire, you may know Dunn as the author of, quite possibly, the perfect answer to the question of what one would cook for Nic Cage.
