If you’re still questioning the power of digital media and original online comedy programming, allow me to submit one June Diane Raphael into evidence. Over the last few years, Raphael has been the co-host of super-popular podcast How Did This Get Made? and most recently, was the star of season two of Burning Love on Yahoo! Screen, wherein she portrayed Bachelorette-like Julie Gristlewhite.
Earlier this year Raphael and her writing partner Casey Wilson (RIP Happy Endings) inked two separate script deals with ABC. The pair also star in Ass Backwards, a flick they wrote together. And now this week in June Diane Raphael news, we find the burgeoning comedy star cast opposite Vince Vaughn. She’ll play Vaughn’s wife in Business Trip, about a Midwestern businessman (Vaughn) who leads his work force on an ill-fated journey across country, according to Deadline.Raphael plays his wife, who wants him to be a better husband and father. Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco (James Franco’s younger brother) have also been cast.
Check Raphael in action below in an episode of Burning Love.
