Anna Faris, Zachary Quinto, Andy Samberg and Chris Evans; can this cast get much better? Yes! Let’s toss Joel McHale into the mix. McHale has come a very long way in the past few years. The Soup is great and all, but ever since his NBC series Community kicked off, McHale is in a new league.
Just the other day Variety unveiled a slew of new additions to the cast of the comedy A Big Year, one of which is McHale. Now, according to THR, What’s Your Number? is also on his to-do list. The film stars Faris as Delilah, a woman who trying to find Mr. Right by sorting through her sexual history and assessing the value of sex quotas. Qunito and Samberg will play two of the men from Delilah’s past, Evans her womanizing neighbor and Matt Bomer as her dream guy. Ari Graynor is also on hand to somewhat even out the guy/girl ratio as the lead’s sister. McHale’s character is Delilah’s boss who she accidentally sleeps with setting off this whole desperate search for “the one.” The gang will unite when filming begins at the end of the month.
This one just seems to be getting better and better. Of course there’s the potential What’s Your Number? will step into romantic comedy cliche territory, but it sounds like there’s a little more to this than the lot. Plus, the cast is fantastic. Say what you want about The House Bunny; Faris is hilarious.
