Andy Samberg, Donald Glover, Bill Hader & More Want a 'Hand Job'

Samberg / Glover / Hader

In case you didn't know, there's a great script called The Hand Job that showed up on the 2009 Black List that has Aubrey Plaza (Funny People, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) attached to star. Though the film doesn't yet have a production company or studio attached, the script had a great reception when a read through was conducted at the Austin Film Festival with Plaza, Bill Hader, Jessica Alba, Alexa Vega and Colin Hanks. Well, now Hader (who recently revealed a couple new projects) told Collider that Andy Samberg, Donald Glover, Connie Britton, Alia Shawkat, Mae Whitman and Johnny Simmons are attached to star.

Hopefully you're relatively familiar with all these people, but if not, here's a rundown of where you might know them from. Obviously Samberg you should be quite familiar with from "Saturday Night Live" and films like Hot Rod and I Love You, Man. Donald Glover stars on NBC's "Community" while Alia Shawkat starred on "Arrested Development" and more recently films like Cedar Rapids and Whip It.  Meanwhile, Mae Whitman also appeared in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World as Ramona Flowers bi-furious evil ex while Johnny Simmons also appeared in the film as Young Neil. Finally, Connie Britton turned in great work on "Friday Night Lights" but I still like her days on "Spin City" too. No word on whether Alba, Hanks and Vega could be involved or not.

I guess it would also help if you knew just what kind of story is contained in a script called The Hand Job. The film follows Plaza as a 17-year old who wants to learn about various sexual activities before she heads off to college. Hader says, "It's a really cool movie that is insanely funny. We did a reading of it at the Austin Film Festival and it just blew the roof off of the place. People went nuts for it. I really hope that happens." He might be bias since his wife Maggie Carey wrote the script, but with this cast attached, it sounds like a laugh riot. It's currently looking for funding, so I'm hoping someone ponies up the dough to get this flick made. How about you?

    Hand jobs are great... they're even better if you're not self-employed.
