Trade Roundup: Patton Oswalt, Melissa McCarthy, Parks & Recreation
Patton Oswalt may star with Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty as “Todd, a friendly eHarmony counselor.” This is the role he was born to play, ladies and gentlemen.
CBS has picked up Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone’s 37-year-old-living-at-home sitcom, just a few weeks after ordering the script. They must’ve thrown a lotta good “grown man walking in on his parents having sex” jokes in there!
Parks & Recreation will be the host of a West Wing reunion later this season, when Bradley Whitford guest stars as the departing councilman whose seat Leslie wants. Tragically, he’ll have no actual scenes with Rob Lowe, but the spirit of government will surely stir the hearts of all those watching City Hall! Also there might be a walk-and-talk.
