CollegeHumor has long been a fixture in the business of funny internet stuff, and now, despite the fact that their fans will have to leave their frat house to enjoy their latest project, the company is making the leap to the big screen.
Collider reports that CollegeHumor has tapped some of TV's biggest talents to star in their first feature film, "Coffee Town." Glenn Howerton of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" fame will lead the cast as a web designer who plans a fake hold-up at the local coffee shop he's adopted at his office when he hears it may be turned into a bar.
"Eastbound & Down" star Steve Little and Ben Schwartz, AKA Jean-Ralphio from "Parks and Recreation," will play Howerton's hipster deadbeat friends, while Josh Groban will take on the role of a barista with a song in his heart but no talent to back it up.
"Wild Hogs" director Brad Copeland penned the screenplay, which he describes as, "A little like 'Cheers.' They go about their day, but they always end up in the same place… I think the deeper story is of people who, with all these offices shutting down, need places to go – even if the people [who work] in those places don't always want them there."
"Coffee Town" begins filming in L.A. next month.
