The timely comedy that deals with the bad economy, tentatively titled Get a Job has locked down a fantastic cast, including Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, Anna Kendrick, Project X’s Miles Teller, Alison Brie,Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Brandon T. Jackson, and Virginia comedian and new SNLive cast member, Jay Pharaoh.
A multi-generational comedy, directed by Dylan Kidd from a screenplay by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel is about four recent college graduates who discover that their lofty expectations and the realities of adulthood are two very different things.
Teller will play Will Davis, who finds his true calling after struggling through an entry level job. Kendrick plays Jillian Stewart, Will’s type-A girlfriend, who lives her life according to the strictest of plans. Cranston plays Roger Davis, Will’s father who is hunting for a job at the same time as his son. Braun, Mintz-Plasse and Jackson will play Will’s three friends, (Charlie, Ethan and Luke, respectively), each of whom find careers with some interesting results. Brie will play Tanya, one of the group’s sharp-witted co-workers. Pharoah will play Skeezy D, who starts his own recession-proof business.
Get a Job begins production on March 12th, 2012 in Los Angeles.
It looks like Pennekamp and Turpel formatted their script in a manner reminiscent of the 2009 comedy Post Grad.
