Don Cheadle to Narrate 'The Wonder Years' Reboot Pilot

Don Cheadle has joined The Wonder Years reboot pilot!

The 56-year-old Iron Man actor has signed on to narrate the upcoming reboot pilot for ABC, The Wrap confirms.

Don will be voicing the adult version of the show’s character Dean as he reflects on his younger self growing up in 1968 in Montgomery, Alabama.

Earlier this month, it was announced that newcomer Elisha Williams had been cast to play the young Dean.

The cast also includes Saycon Sengbloh, Dulé Hill, and Laura Kariuki.

The new version of The Wonder Years will focus on how a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama, in the turbulent late 1960s made sure it was “the wonder years” for them, too.

Back in January, it was announced that ABC had ordered a pilot for the reboot, which will be produced by Lee Daniels. Fred Savage, who rose to fame starring in the original, will also serve as an executive producer and will be directing the pilot.
