We’ve seen Adam Scott bully his brother, Will Ferrell, in Step Brothers. We’ve seen failed-actor-turned-caterer in the Starz comedy Party Down and probably even in NBC’s Parks and Recreation. Well Deadline reports the comedian is the latest addition to the already powerhouse cast in Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
The other members of the cast? How about Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt, and Shirley MacLaine? If that’s not enough, Scott’s also got a pretty full schedule of films with some well known names, including Maya Rudolph, John Hamm, and Kristen Wiig in Friends With Kids, as well as a Sundance comedy entitled Bachelorette with Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, and Isla Fisher.
The 20th Century Fox and Red Hour produced film is actually a remake following a daydreaming magazine photo manager who goes off on a true-life adventure in order to find a missing negative photo. So it’s not only a good project for Scott to spread his wings comedically, but also a chance for us to see Stiller back in the director’s chair since his some-what disappointing Tropic Thunder and the much-loved Zoolander. So the project has a lot of potential to create good buzz for virtually everyone attached and looks to be an exciting concept to witness on the big screen when it’s released in 2013.
