The ever reliable Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation, Step Brothers) is currently in talks to join the cast of Sleeping With Other People, a project which would reteam him with his Bachelorette writer-director Leslye Headland.
Initially, the film was slated to star Kirsten Dunst (who had to drop out and is now being replaced by Alison Brie) and Jason Sudeikis (who seems to still be attached). As for plot details, Sleeping With Other People follows a womanizer (Sudeikis) who befriends a serial cheater (Brie), and sparks begin to fly between the two. Will Ferrell’s Gary Sanchez Productions will produce.
Though we don’t know much beyond that very simple premise at the moment, the film seems like a solid choice for Scott. The comedian, who currently has a main role on the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, has demonstrated an innate gift for making selfish characters likeable in projects like Bachelorette and last year’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Ever since his breakout role on the Starz original series Party Down, Scott has become this generation’s answer to Paul Rudd: a good looking actor who transcends his matinee idol appearance to deliver the goods whenever he’s given the opportunity. Word of his potential involvement in the film only increases our anticipation.
