We’ve got a couple of casting stories for you this evening. First up, Adam Scott is set to star in the indie comedy A.C.O.D. Deadline reports that Stuart Zicherman is making his directorial debut on the project, which he co-wrote with Ben Carlin (The Daily Show). The titular acronym stands for “Adult Children of Divorce,” and the film centers on a thirty-ish man whose parents split bitterly. Scott plays the lead who is forced to play the adult and get his parents back together, all while dealing with his brother who unexpectedly gets married. Scott steals scenes in pretty much every film he appears in, so it’s nice to see him get a leading role. Filming will begin next March, and Scott will work the schedule around filming on NBC’s stellar comedy Parks and Recreation.
Hit the jump for the casting of Matthew Daddario and Elise Eberle in Drake Doremus’ follow-up to Like Crazy.
Newcomer Matthew Daddario has replaced Nico Tortorella in Drake Doremus’ (Like Crazy) untitled drama, and Elise Eberle (The Astronaut Farmer) is in talks to join the cast. Variety reports that scheduling issues forced Tortorella out, and Daddario will now take over his role. The film centers on a high school teacher (Guy Pearce) who is tempted to have an affair with a student (Felicity Jones). Amy Ryan plays Pearce’s wife. Eberle will play the best friend of Pearce and Ryan’s daughter. Judging by the devastating trailer for Like Crazy, the subject matter will probably not be played for laughs.
