Dustin Ybarra is preachin’ new heights…
The Latino stand up comedian and actor has been cast as a series regular on ABC’s The Gospel of Kevin, an hourlong drama pilot from ABC Studios.
The project is a light one-hour about Kevin (Jason Ritter), a down-on-his-luck man who is tasked by God with a mission to save the world. Kevin is a cluelessly self-serving jerk who’s on a dangerous path to despair. After a failed suicide attempt, he’s going home to stay with his widowed twin sister and niece for a time, only to be met with a crisis in the person Yvette (Cristela Alonso).
Ybarra, who has had a recurring role on ABC’s The Goldbergs, will play Tyler.
Ybarra’s other credits include recurring roles on Fox’s Gotham and CBS’ Battle Creek. He’s repped by ATA Management, CAA and Hanson.
