SNL vets Andy Samberg and Bill Hader team with sitcom stars Donald Glover and Aubrey Plaza

03.10.2011

SNL stars Andy Samberg and Bill Hader are teaming up for a big-screen comedy but before you get your hopes up, it's not the blockbuster LASER CATS! film we've all been waiting for. Instead Samberg and Hader will co-star with Donald Glover and Aubrey Plaza (together co-stars of MYSTERY TEAM) for the indie comedy THE HAND JOB.

The film will be written and directed by Maggie Carey, Hader's wife, and will star Plaza as a type-A high school student who decides to lose her virginity before college (so kinda like SUPERBAD for girls). In addition to that cast, SCOTT PILGRIM stars Johnny Simmons and Mae Whitman have also signed on to star in the film.

Samberg is filming the Adam Sandler comedy I HATE YOU DAD while on hiatus from SNL this summer but will find time to shoot a supporting role in HAND JOB while in NYC. Hader can be seen next in PAUL, which opens next week. As for LASER CATS! who knows if it'll ever see the big screen. James Cameron this is your chance!

Samberg and Hader are awesome. Hot Rod is completely underrated. Too bad it has Aubrey Plaza, who I've thus far hated in everything I've ever seen her in. And who the hell is Donald Glover?

Donald Glover is hilarious

Side note: I remember when they tried to release Bill and Ted Go To Hell and had to change the name bc they couldn't put "hell" on tv. And this is called the Hand Job...

Sounds good.

I love it when actors from my television shows (in this case Community and Parks and Recreations) star in movies together. Especially in interesting movies such as this one.

If you haven't seen Mystery Team, go see it now. It's incredible.

Not bad

I read this script awhile back (sorry no link) and it was surprisingly raunchy and funny. Has the feel of Superbad but yeah with a girl's point of view. Casting actually seems pretty spot on so far. Can't wait for this.

Sadly, that title won't last...

just like A Couple of Dicks became CopOut....but Aubrey Plaza is a cutie. We'll probably see Macgruber 2 before a Laser Cats flick. Sad, sad, sad.

If they made a full length Laser Cats movie, I would watch the SHIT out of it.
