Earlier today, we reported that Megan Fox is in talks to join Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up spinoff, featuring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprising their characters from that film. Now it looks like Albert Brooks may be joining the cast as well. Deadline reports that Brooks would play Rudd’s character’s father in the film that Apatow wrote and will direct.

No other plot details are known at this point, but Rudd and Mann stole nearly every scene together in Knocked Up and the pairing of Brooks and Apatow seems like a genius combination, so it’s safe to say that this project’s a bit anticipated. Though Apatow produces plenty, he’s only written and directed three flicks to date: The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Funny People. No word on when production is set to start, but with casting moving rather quickly, the film will most likely be rolling soon.

    Albert Brooks is one of the greatest comedic actors ever. “Defending Your Life” is one of my favorite flicks.
