Charlyne Yi, Chris O'Dowd, Lena Dunham Join The Knocked Up Spin-Off You Are Now Going To See

If you're like me (WHICH EVERYONE IS) you were primarily interested in seeing the Knocked Up spin-off with the hope that it would be exclusively dedicated to explaining why, if Katherine Heigl's character has her life so together in the first film, does she live in her sister's pool house? No, seriously, why? While that mystery will likely never be solved, Variety is reporting that Lena Dunham, Charlyne Yi, Chris O'Dowd and Wyatt Russell joined the Knocked Up spin-off, all of which sounds like a delight. Dunham and Bridesmaids' O'Dowd will play employees at Paul Rudd's indie record company, Russell, son of Kurt, will portray a hockey player, and Yi will reprise her role as the most fun stoner Jodi. Looks like we're gonna need a bigger pool house!
