Amy Poehler and Adam Scott Hit Big Screen Together for 'A.C.O.D'
The two have been an adorable couple on the NBC comedy series "Parks & Recreation," but now Adam Scott and Amy Poehler will share the big screen in a new comedy called A.C.O.D. (or Adult Children of Divorce) The story follows Scott as a young man who discovers that he was enlisted in a study about divorced children many years ago. When he’s ushered into a present-day follow-up study after a book chronicling the divorce is released, it creates new havoc for his family which includes Poehler as his father's new wife played by Richard Jenkins and his mother played by Catherine O'Hara. But that's not all.
Deadline also says Jane Lynch (who also worked with Scott on "Party Down") is also on board as a washed-up therapist who is seeking a second shot at fame by exploiting Scott's divorce-centered trauma. Meanwhile, Mary Elizabeth Winstead also has a role as Scott's long-time girlfriend and Jessica Alba is involved as well, though her character hasn't been revealed. This is one hell of a cast, and I can't wait to see how all these great comedic minds (plus Jessica Alba) come together. Stu Zicherman, writer of series like "Six Degrees" and "Lights Out" will make his directorial debut with the film, and we'll be waiting anxiously.
