Hulu’s sci-fi anthology series “Dimension 404
” has just added two new cast members, Joel McHale
and Sarah Hyland
McHale is jumping on board and will appear in one episode as Mr. Maker, a charismatic, eccentric, yet slightly patronizing founder of a matchmaking company that offers single adults a seemingly perfect solution to finding love. The “Modern Family
” star will also be seen in another stand-alone episode as Chloe, an unassumingly cute, high school student who is just discovering that boys are into her. She pushes her uncle/best pal, Dusty, to take her to a screening of a new sci-fi action film in a fresh, never-before-seen cinematic format – “Cinethrax” – which gives the audience a strange, perilous movie-going experience.
After the news was announced, the “Community
” actor joked with Hyland on Twitter, calling dibs on the front trailer.

and Robert Buckley
also form part of the ensemble as a couple brought together by McHale’s matchmaking service. Ryan Lee
will be Andrew in another one-hour episode, in which he plays a secretly gay teenage introvert and video game addict. Andrew is viciously bullied by classmates and only finds comfort and courage at Ernie’s Arcade where he discovers a mysterious, never-played arcade game called Polybius, and investigates its dark and bloody provenance.
The series is inspired by the Internet’s “404” error code and hopes to evoke that 3am feeling of wandering onto the weird side of the web, stumbling upon stories that cannot be explained in the world that we know. The show is created by Dez Dolly and Will Campos
, with co-creators Dan Johnson
and David Welch
. The project hails from RocketJump and will be distributed by Lionsgate.
