Have you heard About Schmidt?
Max Greenfield will soon put a hold on the womanizing ways he so gleefully indulges in on "The New Girl" as he joins the cast of "They Came Together," according to Deadline.
"They Came Together" follows the tumultuous relationship between Molly (Amy Poehler), the owner of a quirky knick-knack store, and Joel (Paul Rudd), an employee of the big corporation threatening to shut it down. Their courtship involves many complications provided by the supporting players, which include a jealous ex-girlfriend, the office jerk, scary in-laws, a boring dentist, a wise dog … and a wayward couch-surfing younger brother, to be played by Greenfield.
Max Greenfield is probably best known for his regular role on "The New Girl" as Schmidt, the only male executive at an all-female company and a would-be lothario. He's also appeared on "Greek," "Raising the Bar," "Veronica Mars" and recently played the title role in the TV movie, "The Indestructible Jimmy Brown."
"They Came Together" was set to be David Wain's follow-up film to "Wet Hot American Summer" (which Rudd and Poehler also appeared in together) until Universal pulled the plug. Now, over a decade later, Wain and co-writer Michael Showalter are setting up shop in Lionsgate's microbudget division.
Production on "They Came Together" will commence sometime during this upcoming wet hot American summer.
