Adam Scott is a scene-stealer. He’s consistently funny and nails every role he takes on, no matter how small, from Step Brothers to NBC’s Parks and Recreation. So I’m happy to report that the actor’s nabbed roles in a couple of upcoming projects. First up, Risky Business reports that Scott has been cast in the comedy My Mother’s Curse alongside Seth Rogen, Barbara Streisand, Yvonne Strahovski and Colin Hanks. Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) directs from a script by Dan Fogelman (Tangled) that centers on an inventor (Rogen) who invites his mother along for a cross-country trip while he attempts to sell his new product and connect with a long lost love. Lorne Michaels, Evan Goldberg and John Goldwyn are producing.
Additionally, Scott has been cast in See Girl Run. Written and directed by Nate Meyer (Pretty in the Face), the film centers on a girl “who gets caught up in ‘what ifs’ that cause her to dig back into her romantic history.” Scott is set to play a local hero from her hometown that stayed there to become an artist while pining for his high school love. Scott will next be seen alongside Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and Zooey Deschanel in Our Idiot Brother which opens August 26th.
