Silicon Valley season 3 premiere: Watch Erlich insult Pied Piper CEO

See an exclusive clip from the season 3 opener on April 24

Posted on


Season 3 of Silicon Valley boots up this Sunday on HBO, and to mark the occasion, Pied Piper is getting a new CEO: Action Jack Barker.

Here’s the thing about Action Jack (Stephen Tobolowsky), who replaces fired CEO Richard Hendricks (Thomas Middleditch). He’s older than Erlich Bachman (T.J. Miller), and he’s not Erlich Bachman, who feels that he himself is more than qualified for the job. Click on this scene from the premiere, which airs April 24 at 10 p.m., and enjoy all the colorful ways in which Erlich insults Jack for his advanced age. But maybe there’s one way that Jack can win him over. Aviato!
