Actress Lauren Weedman (The Daily Show, Hung) has joined the cast of director/co-writer Nicholas Stoller’s Five Year Engagement. The impressive cast of the Judd Apatow-produced comedy now includes Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Alison Brie, Chris Pratt and Rhys Ifans. The film follows a young couple’s (Segel and Blunt) extended engagement and the bumps and bruises that they undergo along the way.
THR reports that Weedman will portray a “hard-nosed head chef” at the restaurant where Segel’s character works. When we last reported, the film was expected to start production towards the end of April. No word on whether that’s still the case. This marks a reunion of sorts for Stoller and Segel, as the director previously helmed the Segel-penned Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Stoller’s most recent outing was Get Him to the Greek.
