CBS Films has assembled a solid young ensemble for the comedy Get a Job: Miles Teller, Anna Kendrick, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Alison Brie, Nicholas Braun, Brandon T. Jackson, and Jay Pharoah star, with Bryan Cranston on board as the elder statesman. Director Dylan Kidd (Roger Dodger) started shooting Get a Job this week, and Mintz-Plasse has tweeted a couple revelations from the set. First, John Cho is yet another great addition to the cast. (I was shocked to learn that Cho will turn 40 this year, which adds a significant bump to the average age of the cast.) Second, he posted two amusing photos from the set to Instagram.
Hit the jump for the photos and the press release synopsis.
Here’s that synopsis I promised:
Get A Job is a multi-generational comedy about four recent college graduates who discover that their lofty expectations and the realities of adulthood are two very different things. Teller will play Will Davis, who finds his true calling after struggling through an entry level job. Kendrick plays Jillian Stewart, Will’s type-A girlfriend, who lives her life according to the strictest of plans. Cranston plays Roger Davis, Will’s father who is hunting for a job at the same time as his son. Braun, Mintz-Plasse and Jackson will play Will’s three friends, (Charlie, Ethan and Luke, respectively), each of whom find careers with some interesting results. Brie will play Tanya, one of the group’s sharp-witted co-workers. Pharoah will play Skeezy D, who starts his own recession-proof business.
