Chris Pine Confirmed for HORRIBLE BOSSES 2

     October 14, 2013


We learned last week that Warner Bros. wanted Chris Pine to play one of the horrible bosses in Horrible Bosses 2.  Today we can confirm the deal has closed.  According to Variety, Pine will play “half of a father-son duo who steal the main characters’ idea for a new invention.”  WB reached out to Christoph Waltz to play Pine’s father, but a scheduling issue will likely prevent Waltz from taking the role.

Jason BatemanCharlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis will return for the sequel to the 2011 surprise hit about three men who conspire to kill each other’s unbearable employers.  After Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon dropped out, Sean Anders (We’re the Millers) stepped in.  Horrible Bosses 2 opens November 26, 2014.

    Alec Baldwin would be perfect for the dad role.

    This is a really good casting for what I hope will be a funny if not seemingly unnecessary sequel. His comedic antics in the Star Trek films were pretty endearing to his character and the film as a whole.

    If the casting director is not trying to get William Shatner for the father role then they are a fucking moron.

    The movie lost me at “stealing the main characters’ idea for a new invention”. Really?
