There's a Reason You Don't Know Why 'Superstore' Employee Garrett Is in a Wheelchair

By

The show Superstore follows a diverse blend of characters working the day-to-day mundane grind at a megastore known as Cloud 9. One fan-favorite employee that we can’t get enough of is the ever sarcastic Garrett McNeil. 

Actor Colton Dunn — who is not wheelchair-bound in real life —  spoke with NBC about why he likes playing such a quick-witted character, saying, "I think he’s the most normal person in the cast of characters. I think he’s coolest guy on the show and he’s the most handsome guy on the show.”  

In the series, Superstore’s Garrett is paralyzed from the waist down and uses a wheelchair. Wanting to highlight more of his personality rather than his disability, able-bodied actor Colton told the New York Post that he wanted to "have [Garrett] be a fun, cool character. His disability is such a small part of what makes [him] who he is."
