Jason Mantzoukas and More Are Also 'Sleeping with Other People'

Jason Mantzoukas

Hopefully you've had some sort of experience with the comedic force that is Jason Mantzoukas. He's not a household name, but he's been seen in the likes of The Dictator, Baby Mama and has a small role in Neighbors, not to mention roles in shows like "The League" and "Englightened." He'll been seen this summer in the stellar parody They Came Together (don't let the unflattering trailer steer you away), and now he's just booked a supporting role in the new comedy Sleeping with Other People, starring Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie and Adam Scott. But Mantzoukas isn't the only new cast member entering the mix.

A press release from Sidney Kimmel Entertainment has revealed that Amanda Peet (The Way Way Back, Saving Silverman) and Natasha Lyonne (American Pie) are in the film too. The press release says the three new cast members and previously announced names are all headlining the film, so it sounds like this might be a sort of ensemble comedy from the Leslye Headland, the writer/director of Bachelorette. This is one of the first projects to come from Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum's female-centric Gloria Sanchez Productions. Story details are sketchy other than it's a relationship comedy, likely skewing towards R-rated fare. We like the talent involved, so this could be fun.
