'Crash & Bernstein': Philadelphia Eagles' DeSean Jackson Guest Stars (Exclusive Video)
Disney XD is getting an infusion of sports stars.
Through the kids cable network's "Monday Night Overdrive" block airing July 22 in primetime, Philadelphia Eagles star wide receiver DeSean Jackson and NASCAR stock-car driver Joey Logano will drop by Crash & Bernstein and Lab Rats, respectively. (Disney XD aired a night of monster truck-themed programming, "Truckasaurus Monday Mayhem" on July 8.)
In Crash & Bernstein's "Man Crash" (8:30 p.m.), after Dr. Poulos (Danny Woodburn) tricks Wyatt (Cole Jensen) and Crash (voiced by Tim Lagasse) into building repairs so he can go to a camping trip with his friends, they find out and join in on the fun -- but they don't get what they bargained for. In a scene from the episode, which The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts (watch above), the 26-year-old Jackson -- a two-time pro bowler -- is one of the guys sitting by the campfire who makes a very surprising share, while Wyatt can barely contain his excitement.
Lab Rats' "The Bionic 500" follows (9 p.m.), and THR exclusively debuts a still featuring guest star Logano (first photo on bottom). In the episode, Davenport (Hal Sparks) and his new neighbor, Pierce, agree to settle their differences with a stock-car race, with the 23-year-old Logano -- who drives the No. 22 car -- as Pierce's proxy.
Disney XD will also broadcast three X Games specials, one airing each night from July 22-24, days before the Aug. 1-4 event in Los Angeles. In the first special "Disney XD Xology," scheduled to air July 22 at 9:30 p.m., Crash from Crash & Bernstein visits Southern California to learn about the tricks performed during the X Games. THR exclusively debuts a still from the special (second photo on bottom). X Games star Tom Schaar and skater Danny Way will be featured in the July 24 special "Disney XD Break It Down."
Disney XD's "Monday Night Overdrive" airs from 8:30 p.m.-10 p.m. on July 22.
