Mitchell lands ‘Ed’ role after paralyzing accident

Thesp previously worked on 'Veronica,' 'Larroquette'

Paralysis is no defeat for actor Daryl “Chill” Mitchell.

Thesp, who was paralyzed from the waist down in November in a motorcycle accident, is returning full-time to the acting fold, having landing a series regular gig on NBC’s “Ed”– his first on-camera experience as a paraplegic.

Mitchell, who can be seen later this month in Disney’s “The Country Bears,” which he wrapped prior to the accident, will play Eli, a new employee at Ed’s bowling alley.

Gig marks a return to the Peacock for Mitchell, who previously held steady jobs on net’s laffers “Veronica’s Closet” and “The John Larroquette Show.”

He is repped by the William Morris Agency and Immortal.
