Happy Endings‘ Adam Pally will join Parks and Recreation’s Amy Poehler and Adam Scott in the big-screen indie comedy A.C.O.D., EW has learned exclusively. Short for Adult Children of Divorce, A.C.O.D. features Scott as a subject in a study about the offspring of divorced parents, while Poehler (who, like Pally, is a veteran of the Upright Citizens Brigade) stars as the new and third wife of his father, played by Richard Jenkins. (Yes, that means that Poehler is serving as Scott’s stepmother, which sounds like a far cry from the love nerds that the pair embody on Parks.)
“They asked me and I was like, ‘Yeah, I will do whatever you guys want! I will show up as a key grip,” Pally quips to EW. Luckily, Pally was asked to stay in front of the cameras in a supporting role. Jessica Alba, Jane Lynch, and Catherine O’Hara are among the other actors in the film, which has begun filming in Atlanta.
