Exciting Castings! Jonah Hill Joining 'Django Unchained' & Jason Mantzoukas Joining 'They Came Together'

The cast for David Wain and Michael Showalter's romantic comedy parody (or moc-rom-com) They Came Together is filling out pretty awesomely with Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, and Max Greenfield already onboard. Now, The League's Jason Mantzoukas has been added to play Rudd's best friend, a perfect role for him to be the type of maniac we expect.

Also, it was announced that Jonah Hill will be joining the cast of the already in production Django Unchained. This is a bit odd considering its production is far enough along that the film already has a trailer (below). Previously, Hill had been eyed for a larger role in film but had a scheduling conflict. No word yet on what his new role will be but if his previous work is any indication, he'll likely be helping former slave (Jamie Foxx) get to the Greek on time or use math to revitalize the Oakland Athletics.
