Jake Lacy Is Joining 'The Office' and Other People Were Cast in Other Roles

- After being replaced by T.J. Miller on The Goodwin Games, Jake Lacy has been added as a series regular to The Office. He is the second young new hire, after Clark Duke, that seems like a good fit for the rumored reboot.

- Aasif Mandvi is going to co-star in the Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson comedy The Internship (aka "Workplace Crashers") as the man in charge of the internship that Vaughn and Wilson are a part of.

- In other Daily Show correspondent castings, Dan Bakkedahl will play a rival DEA agent in the Sandra Bullock-Melissa McCarthy buddy copy film, The Heat.

- Kathryn Hahn is going to star in Afternoon Delight, an indie comedy written and directed by United States of Tara and Six Feet Under executive producer Jill Soloway.

- Josh Gad will appear on The New Girl as a beer delivery guy named Bearclaw, which is a totally normal name, who has special feelings for Jess. And thus enter the "everyone love Jess" era of the show.

- Stephanie Hunt, known best as the adorable bass player in Crucifictorious on Friday Night Lights, is joining the cast of How to Live With Your Parents.

- Ashley Williams will be back next season on How I Met Your Mother, as Victoria, another not mother.

- 30 Rock's Kevin "Dot Com" Brown will guest on an episode of castle as someone with "Big" in his name. This is not super comedy related but it's funny think of Dot Com hanging without Tracy.
