Before he goes off to film Season 9 of The Office, Ed Helms has lined himself up two movie roles. He’ll appear in director David Wain’s They Came Together, as well as having a cameo appearance in New Line’s We’re the Millers, according to Deadline.
They Came Together is about Joel (Paul Rudd), a corporate tycoon who threatens to tear down a small shop owned by Molly (Amy Poehler). While the two instantly and understandably start to dislike one another, they develop an awkward romance in the same vein of You’ve Got Mail. Ed Helms is playing Eggbert, Molly’s love interest/accountant. Filming will begin next month.
We’re the Millers seesJason Sudeikis as a drug dealer, who hires a fake wife (Jennifer Aniston) and two kids to help him smuggle 1,000 pounds of mairjuana from Mexico to the U.S. Helms is set to play Jason Sudeikis’ shady boss, who hides a dark secret.
The actor returns to The Office set on July 30th, before leaving to shoot The Hangover Part II on September 16th.
