Ed Helms is a very busy man and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Before returning (in a month) to work on The Office, he’ll appear in two new film.
According to Deadline, Helms will shoot They Came Together for Lionsgate in July followed by a cameo in We’re The Millers. The first film, They Came Together will star Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler and will be directed by David Wain (Wanderlust). The plot follows a small-business owner who falls in love with her accountant. Helms is set to play “Poehler’s character’s love interest and accountant.”
His second film, We’re The Millers, will star Jason Sudeikis with Rawson Thurber (Dodgeball) in the director’s chair. Not much is known about the plot but we do know that Helms will play Brad, “Sudekis’ boss and who may be hiding something nefarious and shady.”
Helms’ recent movie credits include Cedar Rapids, Jeff, Who Lives at Home and of course, The Hangover (Part 1 and 2). Rarely does he disappoint and I’m sure his presence in both of these upcoming films will be welcome.
The Office will resume shooting on the last week of July and The Hangover 3 is scheduled for a September shoot, meaning we will be seeing a lot of the talented comic in the year to come.
