Along with the second season of Reaper, Labine has a lead role in the upcoming feature film A Good Old Fashioned Orgy, currently in post-production. The actor also has several new movie projects pending, the starting dates of which are dependent on his involvement in a new TV pilot he shot, Sons of Tucson, which has been picked up by the Fox Network.
"This would be a first for me as I'd be the lead of a show, which is incredibly exciting," enthuses Labine. "I worked my buns off on that pilot and gave it everything I had, so I'm hoping it turned out well, which it sounds like it has. The director, Todd Holland, has worked on lots of shows including Malcolm in the Middle, which the producers and writers were involved in as well, and they're all amazing. I've noticed a bit of a trend lately where people are once again coming up with well-written, clever and 'clean' comedies. With Sons of Tucson we're not doing pee-pee-poop-poo jokes. It's a funny, heartfelt comedy, so we'll see what happens."[caption id="attachment_941" align="aligncenter" width="225" caption="A very happy Tyler Labine of Reaper.

If, however, this is the end of the line for Sock and his buddies, Labine will take with him many fond memories from his time on the series. "I can't say enough how lucky I feel to have been involved with the show," he says. "The best thing about Reaper for me was the chemistry among the cast, and when you go off to film something else, you sometimes forget how fortunate you were to be working with people who you can genuinely connect with. That's rarer than you might think. I know every cast says, 'Oh, our cast is the best,' and it probably is for them, but this for me has been the best working experience I've had with a cast and crew that I can ever hope for in my career."
