The independent comedy film A.C.O.D. is accumulating a terrific band of performers to deliver its sincere but comically fruitful story about a grown man struggling to deal with his parents' divorce. It was announced today that Mary Elizabeth Winstead will join the existing cast of Jane Lynch, Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins and Catherine O'Hara.
Winstead previously played the femme fatale in the sensational Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and starred in last year's horror flick The Thing. In this new movie, Parks and Recreation's Scott plays the lead: Carter, the son of two divorcees, who is charged with the implausible task of keeping his parents civil for the duration of his brother's wedding. Scott's Step Brothers costar Jenkins will play his character's father. Winstead joins the cast as Carter's girlfriend, who manages to keep him sane throughout the traumas of dealing with his family.
The script comes from the film's director Stu Zicherman and The Colbert Report creator/Modern Family writer/producer Ben Karlin.
