Ed Helms To Cameo In WE’RE THE MILLERS
I’ve talked on this site before about my sometime reluctance over crime-comedies. I’ve noted that they often make me nervous, but I’ve then noted immediately that I have little reason to be nervous, or at least more nervous than about any other type of crossover flick. And in this case especially, since I am such an unabashed Coen brothers fan, and crime-comedy is truly their medium. This is all to say that, even at this early date, We’re the Millers is most likely my cup of tea.
Another reason for this is that Ed Helms has been added to the cast, according to Deadline, albeit in a smaller role. I’ve been a big fan of Helms, despite the fact that I saw him open for Zach Galifianakis back in ’08 or ’09 (right around when those two were filming their puzzlingly popular film, The Hangover), and he really did not do very well, especially after following Tig Notaro (to be fair, even Galifianakis had a hard time following that lovely lady). But his early work on The Daily Show, as well as his subsequent if (to me) now tired work on The Office, has secured Helms a solid place in my ranking as a great performer, and I feel his addition, as minor a role as it may be, to this flick, is good news indeed.
We’re the Millers is the story of a pot dealer who slaps together a phony family in order to bring in a major load of marijuana from Mexico to the U.S. Nick Offerman, Jennifer Aniston, and Jason Sudeikis are as of now the only other cast members announced for this film, but these are solid comedic actors indeed, especially Sudeikis, about whom I will go on record as claiming is the best thing to happen to Saturday Night Live since the late, lamented Phil Hartman. He also starred in the very good (if not great) crime-comedy film Horrible Bosses, alongside Aniston, and Offerman, aside from killing it on Parks and Recreation, had an important (but, again, small) part in another recent crime-comedy, Casa de mi Padre.
So far, so good, We’re the Millers. Just add Bobby Moynihan, and I will guarantee you I will be in attendance opening week.
