People Were Cast in Movie and Television Roles

- Josh Gad will play an anti-social engineer named Headphones (yes, Headphones), in the middle-aged internship comedy, The Internship, which co-stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.

- Nelson Franklin, whose played a tall nerd in a bunch of stuff, most prominently Fox's failed Traffic Lights, is going to play Cece's new boyfriend on The New Girl who is partially deaf but entirely a tall nerd. Anna Maria Horsford, who "famously" played the security guard on The Wayans Brothers, is also joining The New Girl as Winston's tough mom.

- Matt Walsh is going to play a tornado chaser in Steve Quale's still untitled tornado chasing film.

- Girls' resident brooding weirdo heartthrob Adam Driver has been cast to play the best friend in the Daniel Radcliffe-Zoe Kazan rom-com, The F Word.

- Mad TV's Michael McDonald will play a villain in the Paul Feig directed, Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock starring buddy-cop movie, The Heat. The cast will also include Taran Killam, Michael Rapaport, Kaitlin Olson, Demian Bichir, and online comic Spoken Reasons.

- Joe Manganiello will return for a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother. With how many old faces they're bringing back, the show is sure acting like it's in its last season.
