SNL alum Will Forte has landed a couple of projects. The actor is set to star in the indie drama Run and Jump, from Samson Films. Written by Ailbhe Keogan and Steph Green, with Green directing, the film also stars Maxine Peake, Brian F. O’Byrne and Sharon Horgan and is set to start filming in Ireland in May.
Deadline also reports that Forte is joining the cast of the Fox animated series Allen Gregory, from co-creator/executive producer Jonah Hill. The show tells the story of a freakishly smart, internationally acclaimed 7-year-old kid (Hill) who’s about to take on the task of attending elementary school with kids his own age. Forte will voice various characters alongside Hill and actor French Stewart.
