We have a couple of quick casting stories to report today. First up, the great Richard Jenkins will re-team with his Step Brothers co-star Adam Scott in Stuart Zicherman‘ A.C.O.D. (Adult Children Of Divorce). Ben Karlin (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart) wrote the script, which centers on a guy (Scott) who has been caught in his parents’ ugly divorce of the past twenty years, and matters become even worse when his brother gets engaged. Then the details of the feud are revealed in a definitive new book on children of divorce. According to Deadline, Jenkins will play the father, “whose uncompromising lifestyle and vehement distaste for his ex-wife threatens to destroy the wedding.” I can see the relation seeing as both Jenkins and Scott are both hilarious scene-stealers. If this is the kind of talent that the movie is attracting, I can’t wait to find out who they cast as the mother and brother. Filming begins in March.
