Adam Scott, the geeky quirky heartthrob of "Party Down" and "Parks and Recreation" fame, may be crossing back over to the big screen for Ben Stiller's latest, a remake of the Danny Kaye starrer, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty."
If the deal goes through (which we really, really hope it does), Scott would join an A-list cast that already includes Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt and Shirley MacLaine, as well as—you guessed it—Ben Stiller himself.
(You thought Stiller might not put himself in the titular role for a movie he's directing? Surely you jest.)
The comedy follows Walter Mitty (the aforementioned Stiller), a meek photo editor whose dreams of adventure come true after some film negatives go missing. According to Cinema Blend, Wiig is set to play a co-worker/ love interest of Mr. Mitty, though none of the other cast-members' roles are known.
In the original, however, Mitty has an overprotective mother breathing down his neck — a part we think seems perfect for MacLaine.
If history repeats itself — as it usually does — Stiller will pretty much run the show, but we're optimistic that he's selecting these talents to showcase their comedic chops. (Stiller, are you listening?)
While there's no word yet on when lensing will begin, now that Scott's on board we hope it starts... yesterday.
