'Future Man' season 2: Derek Wilson reveals the R-rated game Josh Hutcherson and Elisha Coupe play with him on set
From the looks of it, the trio may get another core member come season 2 of 'Future Man'– Stu (Haley Joel Osment).
Hulu’s ‘Future Man’ gave us a lot to laugh about in season 1, may be not the “ha-ha” kind, but definitely “hmm, that’s funny” chuckles.
From the fact that the future of humanity rests on possum semen to Josh (Josh Hutcherson) dressing up as a gigolo to Tiger (Elisha Coupe), Wolf (Derek Wilson) and the other “resistance scum” recharging aka fornicating to relieve stress before going on a mission, this Seth Rogen comedy series has not shied from pushing the envelope when it comes to crass humor.
How then, could we expect the stars of this hilarious show to come up with any game less crass than “throw the nuts in the bucket” to alleviate mid-shoot boredom. Speaking of the various ways in which the tightly-knit cast spend time with each other, Wilson who plays Wolf told Meaww how the trio of him Coupe and Hutcherson made up this game involving rubber prosthetic testicles that was part of Josh’s wardrobe in season 2, which is set to premiere on Friday, January 11.
Wilson, who admitted to making up little games often to keep themselves busy, said, “One game we have this season - we had some rubber... (chuckled) Josh had some rubber prosthetic testicles that were part of his wardrobe, and our game was to try to throw them into a paint bucket while we were waiting for the next scene to shoot. That was one of our games.” Further, he squashed any doubts you might have regarding how fun the game is: “We have a great time.”
Wilson revealed that the three of them are pretty close, and spend a lot of time together. However, in the upcoming season they do not meet each other for a large chunk of time, during which their characters’ individual storylines are explored.
“We actually spent a lot of time - a chunk of time in the middle of season 2 - where we separated and we really missed each other so we would text each other and check in, see how the show is going for everyone and when we came together, we would play our game of throw the nuts in the bucket.”
From the looks of it, the trio may get another core member come season 2 – Stu (Haley Joel Osment). Yes, the very Stu we saw last season take turns being a giant douchebag, a smaller douchebag and a self-doubting shy scientist.
Last we saw of him, Stu was being taken care of by Tiger, who left him a note asking him to stay away from Kronish labs, which was under a “terrorist attack.”

Hundreds of years have passed and we are yet to learn how he is alive and looking exactly as he did in season 1. Is he a time-traveler too? Did he take a super serum that has made him immune to the passage of time? We will learn, come January 11. For now, we know that he has a pivotal role in season 2.
Wilson says, “Stu sort of goes back and forth. You will learn where his alliances are, I think pretty early but he is definitely got a much bigger part in this season.”
Whether Stu was part of Josh, Tiger and Wolf’s squad or not, he definitely was part of Hutcherson, Couple and Wilson’s squad on the sets, even joining the trio during their “throw the nuts in the bucket” game.
