Cobie Smulders and Michael Ian Black Join 'They Came Together'
When you get a movie from David Wain, it's pretty much a guarantee that you'll see his comrades from "The State" and "Stella" show up at some point. Sometimes it's just a cameo, but sometimes they get big supporting roles. Add another project to the list as THR has word that Michael Ian Black has landed a role in They Came Together, the romantic comedy parody starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler which takes its inspiration from You've Got Mail as a big businessman (Rudd) threatening to engulf the little business and its owner (Poehler). Only this time they'll fall in love to hilarious results. But there's more!
"How I Met Your Mother" and The Avengers star Cobie Smulders will also have a role in the film along with Noureen DeWulf, who will next be seen on Charlie Sheen's new series "Anger Management" on FX next week. The latter is playing Rudd's assistant, and right now we don't know what roles Smulders and Black will have. Considering the third member of "Stella," comedian Michael Showalter co-wrote the screenplay with Wain, I'm betting he'll show up at some point, and the director will likely have a bit part as well. Lionsgate sends the film into production in July in New York, and I'm hoping for more great casting.

Despite her completely vacant performance in The Avengers, I will still watch Cobie Smulders in just about anything.
