Community's Gillian Jacobs will star in Hot Tub Time Machine 2

06.07.2013

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE was a surprisingly fun movie with an incredibly stupid premise. The cast of characters featuring John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke helped elevate what would have otherwise been a forgettable movie to an entertaining ode to the 80s. HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 is coming, minus Cusack and plus Adam Scott, and now we have a new female lead as well.

COMMUNITY star Gillian Jacobs is joining the cast of HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2, but her role remains unknown. I would assume she is playing the love interest against Adam Scott, much like Lizzy Caplan did opposite John Cusack in the original. It remains to be seen how the story will return the group of friends to the magical hot tub.

Chevy Chase will return for the sequel as well as the repairman with mysterious knowledge of the time travel properties of the titular hot tub. Chase co-stars with Jacobs on COMMUNITY so this will be a reunion of sorts.

Gillian Jacobs has compiled a nice filmography lately with roles in THE INCREDIBLE BURT WONDERSTONE, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, HELENA FROM THE WEDDING THE BOX, and CHOKE. She seems to play better wacky characters like her part on COMMUNITY. Based on fans of the original film alone, HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 is likely going to be a modest hit. At MGM these days, are there any other kinds of hits?

Cool to see Chevy is back! I hope he has a bigger role. Hopefully he gets in the tub and is transported too. Bummer Cusack isn't returning!

This is just a movie that doesn't need a squeal. the ending to the first was perfect and an all around profound experience. Why ruin that with an unnecessary sequel. Except that Box Office of course.

I don't see how a sequel would work because the 1st movie works pretty well as a standalone but however, i'm keeping an open mind.

i thought i was part of the few people who actually liked this movie, glad to know it had a good number of people who liked it too. Now hopefully the second one is fun too.

I'm disappointed by the fact that Cusack won't be returning, but I do enjoy Scott's and Jacob's work and the fact they star on two of my favorite comedies (Community and Parks and Rec) is just a big positive when it comes to joining the Hot Tub crew.
